I really love this first piece from artist Milan Nenezic. Thank you, Sweet Station. 

” In my work I’m dealing with human body, human perception, the way we see and project ourselves at the outside world. I am particularly interested in different states of consciousness, their impact on the perception of time and space – what we call reality. I believe that every state of mind can affect in which way the matter will appear. Dreams as altered state of consciousness together with the symbolism of dreams (unique symbols of each individual and how we communicate with ourselves through them) is another important part of my work. The way in which we exist in this framework, for me is a huge source of ideas and insight into the human being.” – Milan Nenezic

Wedding dessert nibbles. If you are having a kids area at your wedding these are a good idea for someone who pays attention to the little details. Loving those doughnuts. #dessert #weddingdessert #sweets #weddingsweets #desserttable #sweetstation #weddingideas #weddinginspiration #weddingsolutions #idoweddingsng

These are so gorgeous. They have that pixelation sort of appearance, but they also remind me of mottled sunlight streaming through branches and dancing over skin. 

Thank you, Sweet Station. 

” My work is an exploration of identity. Who am I? Who are you? Can there be a connection? These questions were my starting point. What has resulted is a patch-work style of colors and shapes as tools to reconcile the interior and exterior realms. My process is a meditative exercise in breaking up features and re-assembling them into new structures, imbued with abstract thoughts and feelings. As an artist, it is my hope to create a real connection with others and ideally inspire people to question their own identity and complexities to see what truths may develop.” –Sara Zin

Today’s a big day. 

Over the summer, I emailed Honey from Sweet Station to thank her for posting work from my amazing professors and tell her about how much her site inspires me. I told her that it was my goal to have my work reach the level that would one day allow for my work to be worthy of her site. I was hoping she might send me a sticker for her blog that I’ll add to my collection on my little saturn.

She did me one better. Honey from Sweet Station is an absolute saint. She posted my work on her website today. This is a huge deal for me, mostly because of how sweet it is that there are people out there so supportive of fledgling artists and so determined to further inspire them that they’ll go so far as to post their work. Seriously. I’m flabbergasted. 

If you aren’t already following Sweet Station, do it. Please.

In the same vein as that awesome fold up kayak that Sweet Station posted awhile ago, here’s a neat tool that I would just love to have. 

Thank you, Sweet Station!

Built for the weekend adventurer, the Gerber Steady combines the utility of a multi-tool and the functionality of a tripod for compact digital cameras (up to 340 grams) and smart phones (up to 170 grams). It comes equipped with an adjustable cell phone and screw-in camera mount and two foldable legs that serve as a tripod. The rest of the tool is all Gerber ingenuity – a fine edge blade, a serrated blade, three screwdrivers, a bottle opener, pliers and wire cutters. Steady on down the trail.

I desperately wish that I could create works of art like this. 

Thank you, Sweet Station. 

For Valerie Hegarty, the joy of her work lies in its destruction rather than its making. Centring her practice on the politics of the American myth, Hegarty’s canvases and sculptures replicate emblems of frontier ethos – colonial furniture, antique dishware, and heroic paintings of landscapes and national figures only to demolish them by devices associated with their historical significance.

Holy hell. I love amazing sculptural work. 

Thank you, Sweet Station.

Well this is a different find from Sweet Station. I would totally love to add this to my bug out bag. 

Thank you, Sweet Station. 

Stash it in a trunk. Check it on a plane. Stow it on a sailboat. Hike it in to remote waters. No garage, SUV or roof racks necessary. The Oru Kayak makes boating simple, easy, and accessible— so you can spend more time on the water. The Oru Kayak is fast, stable, and handles incredibly well. Its light weight makes it fast and easy to paddle. The hard chines offer excellent tracking. And the 25″ width makes balancing easy, even for beginners.

I’ve been thinking about what I would be interested in doing if I ever dipped my toe in the sculpture pond. I’m not sure if I would be able to create anything really, but there’s something in these pieces that really caught my eye. I would love to try doing something like this…

Thank you, Sweet Station!

I’ve been seeing quite a few of these fine art photographs popping up from various artists online. I dig it. I prefer to find a way to incorporate oil painting into the mixture but these work as they are. 

Thank you, Sweet Station!

Brooke Shaden is a fine art photographer living and working in the Los Angeles area. Her passion lies in creating new worlds through photographs. Her vision extends beyond the realm of the camera, creating images that resemble paintings and speak of an era that is not our own. Each image is a story.

I really really really love this work. 

Thank you, Sweet Station.

Zhang Haiying (born 1972) is an artist based in Songzhuang, Beijing, China. Zhang was born in Beijing. He is a painter. His Anti-Vice Campaign series is based on images taken from the internet of women involved in the Chinese government’s crackdown on prostitution and pornography. However, in paintings shown at Art Beijing 2007, Zhang began to move away from the previous socio-political themes present in his work. He graduated in 1997 from the Fine Arts Department of Shang Dong Academy of Fine Arts.

I really love how this painter uses those flat color fields in his paintings. 

Thank you, Sweet Station!

“Principally, I am interested in depicting the banality and fraternity in a mechanized infantry unit and so that is what we see at the top. When all is said, done and painted, what I am hoping to acheive is an emphasis of both the similarity to and gap between civilian and military culture; the emphasis on communal responsibility within military culture is, in a ideal situation, the best that we aspire to as humans. While there is the unmodifiable fact that the job is to kill people, infantry life concurrently creates an intense loyalty which is partially borne out of a need to emphasize difference between them and us.” – Scott Waters
