Playfulness abounds in dazzling Dutch designer Femke Agema's fashions

Playfulness abounds in dazzling Dutch designer Femke Agema's fashions | Studio Art and Art History | Scoop.it

Femke’s work marries technical skill with some fantastical ideas as proved by her two most recent collections. For Elders, her 2013 spring/summer range, she took inspiration from our primordial emotional response to the onset of spring, “the simple joy we feel in being let loose into the wild to play in an environment overflowing with possibilities.”

Surrounded by Beauty

Surrounded by Beauty | Studio Art and Art History | Scoop.it

There is no equivalent in the many Native American languages for the word art. Yet the objects here suggest that Native Americans are a highly spiritual people who create objects of extraordinary beauty. In Native American thought there is also no distinction between what is beautiful or functional, and what is sacred or secular. Design goes far beyond concerns of function, and beauty is much more than simple appearances. For many native peoples, beauty arises from living in harmony with the order of the universe.The concerns and aspirations of a vital contemporary American Indian population changes as the world changes. Today some Native American artists continue traditions of their ancestors, while others transform those traditions in new and innovative ways.
