I have a weakness for embroidered art and Ana Teresa Barboza. Using yarn, wool and embroidery, she pulls together sculptured tapestry landscapes and embeds floral visualizations onto fabric.  Christopher Jobson from Colossal describes her works as, “Mimicking the flow of waves or grass, each piece seems to tumble from its embroidery hoop where it flows down the gallery wall.” ***The pieces above are part of Barboza’s 2013 Suspension series and more can be viewed on her blog (tip: click “entrar” next to each item). You can also read about her work on Now Contemporary Art. (via Ignant, I ♥ Art)

Cats are critical to posters, apparently. A smattering of kitties appear in Posters, a critical study of the development of poster design in continental Europe, England and America by Charles Matlack Price.
Price obviously knew the importance of cats in art. He certainly had strong feelings about the topic of art, going so far as to include the quote above from Robert Louis Stevenson as the epigraph to the book. And since we see 2 kitties gracing the title page, we can deduce that his idea of good art = cats. But I’m no art historian.

"At last she looked up at him. Her eyes were full of tears, and her look unbearably naked. Such looks we have all once or twice in our lives received and shared; they are those in which worlds melt, pasts dissolve, moments when we know, in the resolution of profoundest need, that the rock of ages can never be anything else but love, here, now, in these two hands’ joining, in this blind silence in which one head comes to rest beneath the other."
John Fowles, The French Lieutenant’s Woman (via haylr)
