Justin Morin’s Silk Draperies Reference Pop Culture and Natural Phenomena in Equal Measure

Justin Morin’s printed silk installations take many forms — some unfurl dramatically against an expansive gallery wall; others are cinched and pleated like couture; still others are knotted, tied, looped, bunched, gathered, or, simply hang listlessly like a flag. Morin’s specific visual vocabulary, developed over the course of a decade since he created his first printed silk work in 2011, proposes that anything and everything in our information-dense and visually overwrought world can be unraveled and represented in sensual, gradient silk.

36 Extremely On-Trend Face Masks For Wearing Every Time You Leave the House

Remember when the term "masking" conjured visions of an electively low-key Friday night spent with your face cloaked in petrified French clays, dripping honey concoctions, or mildly alarming acids? Today, of course, amidst an ever-expanding backdrop of heartbreak, fear, weirdness, and uncertainty, Mask Life has taken on new meaning. But while removing your mask may no longer reveal a newly glowing visage, it's still possible to view wearing a mask as a form of self care. Even better, it's a way to care for others around you.

These Two New Collections of Art Carpets Started Out As Actual Paintings

Art carpets are usually handmade, are expensive to produce, and aren't necessarily that easy to incorporate into the average interior, which keeps them in the realm of the rarefied. Every time I see a collection I like, I take extra notice. This winter I found two: one being the latest limited-edition collection from my favorite Australian brand Zou Zou, and one being a series of one-of-a-kind client commissions by London designer Sussy Cazalet, which she shot inside the gallery Beton Brut.

Caroline Z. Hurley’s Gee’s Bend–Inspired, Stitched-Together Paintings

Caroline Z. Hurley is best known for her block-printed quilts, tablecloths, blankets, and fabrics by the yard, but if you follow Hurley on Instagram, you know that painting is also a huge part of the Brooklyn-based artist's practice. Her newest works combine elements of both mediums, using vintage fabrics or cottons woven by hand by artisans in Oaxaca as the base for painted and stitched-together canvases.

Oyyo’s New Swedish Flat-Weaves Are a Master Class on the Reuse of Leftover Yarns

For Oyyo's new series, Landing Site Irregular, the focus was on the reuse of leftover dyed yarns to create experimental compositions in custom colors, such as vibrant-azure blue and light tangerine. Smaller in size than their original offerings, these rugs breathe new life into the yarn, but the geometric underpinnings remain, inspired by visionary architects and artists Shusaku Arakawa and Madeline Gins’s theories on space and color.

Tantuvi Travertine Collection Offsite Online

Tantuvi’s New Rugs Were Inspired By the Travertine Quarries of India and the Spanish Steps of Rome

On car journeys throughout India, Tantuvi's founder Arati Rao and Adam Sipe often pass through cities and villages set against a dramatic landscape of marble and quartz quarries, mountains, sand dunes, magical desert lakes, and jungles. “The sandstone color that permeates all these landscapes is always on my mind,” Rao says. “Travertine quarries are all over the region and the earth changes from beige to ochre then deep ruby as you move throughout.” These colors were the inspiration behind Tantuvi’s latest collection, fittingly called Travertine.

This L.A. Artist’s Studio Is the Epitome of Calming, Meditative Vibes

For Los Angeles–born artist Cindy Hsu Zell, nature has been a lifelong inspiration. Working from her sunny North Hollywood studio, Zell creates tactile sculptures with rope, ceramic, wood, and, most recently, stone. In the midst of this confounding global crisis, we remote-toured her space and took some time to chat with her about confronting the economics of productivity, prioritizing mindful practices, and the magic of working with organic materials.
