Succulent Art
By: Jayme Catalano

Watching People by Jayme Catalano Artist

Watching People by Jayme Catalano
Artist Michael Carson creates large paintings that are a cross between Norman Rockwell and the moody Prada ads of the late 2000s. His long-legged, gamine figures wear the visage of modern disaffected youth while trapped in a time period not quite our own. The effect is mesmerizing. Carson says, “I paint people because I have always had a serious addiction to watching people. I try to get that feel in my paintings. As if I am just watching people doing everyday things in my work.” You can view Carson’s work at the Richard J. Demato gallery in Sag Harbor, New York or online here.

A Common Name by Jayme Catalano Graphic

A Common Name by Jayme Catalano

Graphic designer Paige Smith has created a street art project in the nooks and crannies of urban Los Angeles. Working under the pseudonym A Common Name, her three dimensional paper objects represent crystal, quartz, and geodes, mineral formations normally found in nature. The results are whimsical, mystical, and more than a little magical. As she says, “A parallel aspect of these ‘geodes’ in nature and in the city is they are always unexpected treasures. You might go hunting for treasures but you generally happen upon them during your adventures or casual interaction with the environment.” Visit her website for information on the specific…

Purist Canvas by Jayme Catalano Sylveste

Purist Canvas by Jayme Catalano

Sylvester Stallone once said that, “if bad decorating was a hanging offense, there’d be bodies hanging from every tree.” Luckily it’s not, and even if it was, interior designer David Oldroyd would not be among the casualties. He recently completed a modernist renovation of a thirties townhouse that perfectly combines the crisp edge of modernism with the warmth of natural materials. Located in the hills above the Castro district in San Francisco, the interior is a light-filled, purist canvas perfect for its vintage furniture, rare collections, and sensual sculptures. Visit the Style Saloniste for additional photographs of the house. You can view more of photographer Philip Harvey’s work at his website.

Decimated Americana by Jayme Catalano Su

Decimated Americana by Jayme Catalano
Susan Mikula uses expired and aged Polaroid film found at rummage sales to capture images of decimated Americana, ghostly figures, and haunting landscapes. Like the badly outdated film itself, the images tell a story of the American Dream gone sour. As her website describes, “Mikula has captured a fading aspect of a bygone era with fading film and an obsolete technology.” Whether derelict and deserted industrial buildings, docks, or houses, the images all evoke the same feeling of barely remembered, semi-coherent dreams and memories. Mikula’s work is showing in Secretly Seeking at the Curatorium in Hudson, New York.

Pacific Skies, by Jayme Catalano Renowne

Pacific Skies, by Jayme Catalano

Renowned photographer Frank Espada spent the first 50 years of his career documenting the issues concerning minorities, culminating in The Puerto Rican Diaspora: Themes in the Survival of a People, a book which has won numerous awards, and is represented in the Library of Congress along with 83 vintage prints. Now in the sunset of his own life, Espada has turned his lens toward the sunset views over the Pacific Ocean, photographing the same patch of sky every day for a year. “Pacific Skies” is an examination of the dynamic between the sun and the atmosphere as well as photographic composition and aesthetics related particularly to color, light, perspective, and form.
