Leah’s Ladies

Leah’s Ladies

Girl Crowd Print, $20 There is something so bewitching to me about Brooklyn based Leah Reena Goren’s prints!  So many of them feature simple subjects like a group of women, some cutie cats, or the phases of the moon, yet they make me feel so many feelings.

Valerie Hegarty’s Untamed Art

Valerie Hegarty’s Untamed Art

Brooklyn based artist Valerie Hegarty’s signature style, an explosion of nature overcoming humanity’s attempt to civilize and make sense of it, reminds me of that show Life After People.  Do you guys remember that show?  Touted as a “documentary” by the History Channel, it was all about what would happen to the world, and what(…)

In a strangely prescient moment, Steve went with an image of an Asian man caught in a wave. Little did we know that(…)
