Fresh

Inspiring and refreshing works by Fede Saenz (from Brooklyn, NY via Argentina) and Melissa Castillon (Cambridge, UK). Meticulous, dainty, and purposeful strokes with pretty colour combinations—makes me want to make stuff all day long, realising I haven’t been painting and drawing enough as of late. I remembered reading this great Miranda July quote:

I guess my favourite thing in the world is when I look at a piece of art, or read a story, or watch a movie where I walk away feeling like ‘Oh my god—I have to do something, I have to make something or talk to someone—things are not the same anymore’—and so I try to make work where you come away with that feeling. It’s like, yeah, you’re thinking about what you just saw, but even more than that—you feel able, you feel like, kind of propelled. From Pretty Cool People Interviews
