Inspired – Karin van der Linden

Enjoy the beautiful artworks by the textile artist Karin van der Linden. Her pieces are a clever combined mix of embroidery, sculpture, installation and mixed media collage. The aesthetic is impeccable and incredibly poetic.

I didn’t find so much insights about her art research, but these are some words from one of her exhibition called Remember Me:

The exhibition, and the piece of work highlighted in it, “Remember Me” is based on memories of my mother, my grandmother and my own past. The mostly orphaned materials that I have used give an extra explanation.

My mother was born in a monastery in Krefeld where my grandfather and grandmother at the time, forced by circumstances, lived. She lived there with her brother for the first 12 years of her life. A period that determined the rest of her life.

The front of the piece shows embroidery, supplemented with photos and objects from that time. In my childhood, during the holidays, I regularly visited monasteries related to my mother’s past. Photos of this are shown on the back of the workpiece. In addition to the memories, the work also portrays a dark, laden atmosphere.

Magdalena Lamri Art

Amazing!

Enjoy the nostalgia mood artworks by the French artist Magdalena Lamri. I love the way she compares humanity and human condition with the majestic nature, creating a “dark fairy tale” final touch.

You can also find Magdalena on Saatchi Art, Facebook and Instagram.

Paintings By Han Yuliang

Dreamy!

I love how the Chinese artist Han Yuliang recalls his childhood memories with this beautiful oil portraits.

There is a mix and match of nostalgia and sadness that makes each piece more fascinating.

 

 

Paintings By Claire Tabouret

Love!
Enjoy the nostalgia-vintage feeling that suggests me the beautiful portrait paintings by Claire Tabouret.

Paintings by Jeroen Blok

Beautiful!

I love the sense of dark nostalgia behind these pieces.

The Dutch artist Jeroen Blok uses a neutral palette of beige, black and white colours, to realise dreamy portraits.  The solitary subjects of his paintings seems to come out from a quirky circus of some sort.

Romy van Rijckevorsel – Art & Nostalgia

Dreamy!

The Dutch artist Romy van Rijckevorsel takes inspiration from classic vintage photos to create beautiful paintings.

Memories, nostalgia and bright colours are always present in her works, I love her unique illustrative style combined with old vintage portraits.
