Yuki Aruga (part two)

Sweet Dreams, 2011

Everlasting; Circular Fragmentation, 2011

Untitled; Circle 1, 2011

Perpetual Bloom, 2011

Well, I told you to expect more from the multi-disciplined artist Yuki Aruga and here it is.  Her beautiful oil paintings are so evocative of the roses in them that I can almost smell the heady scent.  Intoxicating.

A little Friday fancy

A few images that have been inspiring me lately.  It's always nice to start the weekend with visual elevenses.  
I can't credit them because I don't know their origins, very sorry 'bout that.

Yuki Aruga (part one)

Sustained in Motion



I love animals and I don't eat them so you might think having a 'bit of a thing' about taxidermy is perhaps a little odd.  Well in this case the talented Yuki Aruga uses a delicate touch and the addition of fresh flowers for a 21st century take on the ancient art of taxidermy. Floristry and dead animals... strange but wonderful.
