Jan sends a link to eye candy from Belgian painter Isabelle de Borchgrave whose work is featured in the exhibition Pulp Fashion hosted by the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. For over 17 years, de Borchgrave has drawn inspiration from iconic Renaissance paintings, historical figures and fashion luminaries to create life sized three dimensional paper sculptures. If you’re fortunate enough to attend, the exhibition runs through June 5, 2011. A sample of her work is shown at right; this paper dress is copied from a gown worn by Marie-Antoinette. You can see more of de Borchgrave’s work at her website or read more about her in the book Paper Illusions.
As ever, today’s entry includes links to six years worth of entries published on this site for this given week -with another 2,000+ in the archives. I hope your weekend is great but between trade show attending, one planned dog napping, rooster chasing and long awaited out of town visitors, mine is shaping up to be busier than usual. I’d hoped to work in a bit of gardening between the dog napping and rooster chasing but I don’t think I should aspire to it.
