Claire Nereim @ Jancar Jones

Claire Nereim has a show at Jancar Jones in LA. Claire’s installation includes some fascinating materials: stacked newsprint, velvet ties,¬†plaster, chromed metal, pyrite and plums. The plums are fantastic.

“Utilizing practical materials, these works map the areas between utility and impracticality, and history and temporality. Often inspired by dreams, they straddle the line between the real and the imagined. Analogous points of tension between interrelated, opposing states — between surface and depth, conscious and unconscious — serve as touchstones.” – Jancar Jones¬†

I was inspired this week by these awesome leggings on Pixie Market and this calming screen print by Los Angeles artist, Claire Nereim. Unfortunately I’m not much of a leggings girl, but I love the pattern! The print is part of Claire’s series Drift (which I believe refers to drift wood) and another print in the series is currently for sale here.
