a little yu for you
I fell in love with the Seattle based artist, Herman Yu, a few years ago and excitedly await her calendar each year. I know its only June but everyday as I glance at the lovely piece of art that charts my month, I get a tiny rush in anticipation. Her work blends nature, light, handcrafting and technology. A modern recipe resulting in gorgeous designs. A simple branch of blossoms or wilting willow are given a subtle glow of life, abstract, softened yet saturated palette. The compositions as well balance stillness with energy. Exquisite petite pieces in various cards and calendars printed on the thickest cottony stock. Counting down, six months to go...but get a taste here for now.
