Currently doing the blog rounds is Therese Himmer's very sparkly, very bling sequin graffiti art. Very nice!
"I was interested in how these visual qualities also recall how landscapes respond to changes in wind and light. I moved from Denmark to Reykjavik in 2005 and the Series came as a response to my encounter with Icelandic nature and culture. In this context the sequins operate on dual levels. As they scintillate like water, ice or lava, they have an immediate visual and formal quality, which, in this framework, addresses the relationship between the natural and the artificial. Meanwhile, extracted from the commercial world, they serve as a critique of the increasing and disturbing commodification of Icelandic nature." Therese Himmer
