Louise Bourgeois in London

At Hauser & Wirth Gallery in London you will find a solo exhibition by the late Louise Bourgeois untill the 18th December. The exhibition is featuring over seventy fabric drawings made between 2002 and 2008, as well as four large-scale sculptures. Made from clothes and other domestic effects accrued over decades, Bourgeois’s fabric drawings are abstract yet acutely personal works, retaining allusions to the materials’ past incarnations. So if you come to London go and check out these beautiful pattern and colour combination or take a look here.

Popquilts from Julie Ansiau

The French photographer Julie Ansiau creates these wonderful multi coloured objects which she draws, sews and embroiders entirely by hand. She calls these objects « popquilts ». Take a look at her website - really amazing hand work and fun objects that makes you happy!

Julie is inspired by pop culture, referencing everyday life and reproducible objects, a deliberately simple language that then comes to life through her needle.

murmur - a cool Japanese magazine

Look at these beautiful covers. We came across this nice Japanese magazine called murmur. It is published by a Japanese fashion brand and the theme is "To live beautiful and sweet". The magazine is  about eco-fashion and sustainable lifestyles. Maybe a good theme for Stella to look into for the next issue...? Please let us know if there are subjects you wish to read about in Stella.
