As I mentioned in my last post, New England Home has launched a Connecticut edition and I couldn’t be more excited. In the premiere issue, I did an artist profile on Cornelia Kubler Kavanagh, a sculptor who translates the beauty and brutality of nature into sensuous form. Read about her amazing work (as seen below) and see the gorgeous interior designs in the magazine which is on sale at many of the major book and grocery stores in Fairfield County. For those of you who can’t get hold of the actual magazine, click here for Cornelia’s story.

I’m excited to report that New England Home magazine has launched a Connecticut edition and I’m so pleased to have been asked to contribute a piece for the premiere issue.

The magazine, which offers a sophisticated look at area designers, architects, products and artists,  is now expanding its focus to the exceptional design world to be found in Fairfield County.

In this era of rough seas for the publishing biz it does my heart good to see such a lovely and esteemed magazine float confidently through the flotsam.

Kudos!

I met husband and wife photographers Wendy Carlson and John  Kane when we did a magazine shoot together a while back.  I love the way Wendy captures a broad range of subjects with unpretentious elegance and, like the Momix and Pilobolus dancers that he works with, John’s photography elicits lyric and rhythm in human form.

I look forward to working with them again soon!

I came across the hyper clever work of Kevin Van Aelst,  an artist who lives and works in New Haven, CT during the recent Open Studios group show.

The elasticity of his technicolor brain conceives these color photographs which he says, “consist of common artifacts and scenes from everyday life, which have been rearranged, assembled, and constructed into various forms, patterns, and illustrations… creating order where we expect to find randomness.” Photos of his can be seen  illustrating “The Medium” in the New York Times Magazine.
