Francoise Seignobosc

Celebrating the middle of my holiday in France with work by Francoise Seignobosc from the books The Big Rain and Thank You'. These old illustrations look very like folk art, they are charming and have a lovely balance across the page.

Mitsuru Ishimasa いしまさみつる

Mitsuru Ishimasa いしまさみつる, is a Korean illustrator who's work is very primitive and loose. Lately he has been working with lots of constructed paper pieces, log books and mini sculptures. These butterfly pictures remind me of France and summer.

Oamul 卤猫

Oamul's animated gifs have a beautiful soft quality to them, this one for me is about thinking and dreaming time. Omal 卤猫 is a Chinese illustrator with a lot of love in his work.

I am starting my holiday posts with Csil a French illustrator who works primarily in pen. I love her slightly sulky people in bathing costumes. 
Csil's geometric style reminds me a little of Satoshi Kitamura's especially in her larger illustrations which include interiors or landscapes. 

For the next two weeks I am in France and so I have scheduled two weeks of art room posts. This is always tricky as I don't tend to see mistakes until too late and also it is difficult to get the flow right but I hope you enjoy the selection that I have found for you.

Kerstin Göldner

Today I wanted to have some painting, these works are by Berlin based artist Kerstin Göldner, Kerstin's art has a profound sense of rest, calm and peace. Kerstin's work has wonderful exploration of colour in her paint with subtle structural lines of charcoal and pastel.

Sabine Timm

Following on from my earlier vases of flowers post, In one of those strange coincidences I then saw on the same day Sabine Timm's wonderful two dimensional vases incorporating a strawberry leaf. 

Jan Köchermann & Annemette Lichtenberg

My first post about flowers in vases today is by Jan Köchermann & Annemette Lichtenberg found at Gallery Pi. These are really primitive ceramic vases, that I originally thought were card or paper. They made me think how wonderful it would be to make pretend paper vases and place flowers in jars etc behind them.
