Inspiration: Walker Evans & Wolf Kahn

A fellow blogger recently asked me what inspires me whether it be books, music, etc.

Two artists I find inspiration from are…

Walker Evans who was a genius American photographer (1903-1975).

His work captures the basics, yet evokes emotion. Look closely at the details.

And Wolf Kahn who uses color so brilliantly in unexpected combinations how can I not be inspired?

I would love to do a room with accents in any of these color combinations.

He is represented by Jerald Melberg Gallery here in Charlotte.

Maybe this post sums up my aesthetic goals quite well: simple with details, straight-forward, functional, beautiful + color.

Both of these books are within arms reach…..
