Damien Gernay - A New Dimension in Wood Textured Furniture We like to deliver you the artistic objects inspired by from everyday life, creative household items and works that may be a source of inspiration. Today we meet you with an artist from Belgium, Damien Gernay. Gernay’s works are being exhibited in Belgium, Germany, Italy, France, Switzerland and other countries since 2007 and his approach to the object is determined by the fine views in today's world. Damien states that he tries to translate the world of perceptions in three dimensions and touches turn to voice, images turn to colors and repeatings turn to figures in his works. Damien Gernay also tells about his works that: "The materials have their own vacobulary - I attempt to create my own vocabulary with it. These attempts that are establihed on application include putting the different materials one after the other and face to face. Therefore, objects gain sense, invite, imply and question. The meaning becomes consistent for one-time or multiple times". Let's talk about the project TEXTURED_CABINET. The cabinet made of plywood and wood textured paint (faux bois) really creates an interesting perception. The collection named TEXTURED_OBJECTS has an investigation feature, oriented to concrete awareness of objects via the conceptual approach. The object has been modeled in three-dimension to imagine the last status. The modeling program was studied stage by stage. Before everything, the thing known as neutral object is being designed and this meets the shape of object. Only after this, the texture is being applied on the object. Because of this reason, Gernay proposes to proceed with the same approach; to create a neutral object as they are represented normally, in other words, to prepare the white firstly and then to sustain the project, in a word to cover it with the texture.
Joe Doucet - Minimal Game Cards How can reduce it to a simpler one or how a design can be more minimal precisely? Of course, during this period, it is very important not to lose anything from its playability and to have a stack of eye-pleasing game card in front of you? The answer for all the questions of "How much can it be minimized?" is simple for the designer Joe Douce: "A minimum!” These cards with smart and smooth design have a design that survived from the splendid dressed kings and queens and massive hearts and cores. It overlaps with our contemporary and simple understanding of decoration. Joe Doucet is an award-winning designer whose designs have been exhibited in many places. He has produced works in many fields such as furniture design, electronics design, jewelry design, environmental design and architecture. He has served for brands such as BMW, Braun, Hugo Boss, Lexon, Moët & Chandon and Target. He has more than forty patents for his inventions and designs.
John Breed - A Different Approach to the Rainbow John Breed who was born in 1969, produces in the field of art for over 20 years. After his adventurous journey, Breed has begun to produce works of art in a full creative way and he has learned how to make calligraphy from a calligraphy master in Kyoto, Japan, graffiti in New York and fresco painting in Rome. He has acquired a variety of information about the icon painting in Russia and finally he has learned how to make the art of traditional landscapes during his China trip. When we look at the time John Breed spent for learning the various techniques, it will not be difficult to see his source of inspiration in the production of art and his infrastructure; 1985 – 1990, studies in Decorative Painting, Nimeto Utrecht, The Netherlands; 1990 - 1991 studies in Fresco Painting, Academi di Superflou, Rome, Italy; 1993, studies in Japanese Calligraphy, Kyoto, Japan, 1996 studies in China Landscape Paintings, Quil, China, 2001; studies in Iconography in Cor Kroone. The work that Breed has made for the Shoe Salon Breuninger is worth a visit. The installation which has 145 shoes has a striking appearance indeed.
