I’ve loved the work of Mexican artist, Alejandra García y Gutiérrez, for some time now. Her work has an amazing sense of color and movement and shape, no doubt inspired by the wonderful history she’s inspired by. Of course, I was thrilled when she agreed to provide artwork inspired by our Book Club book, Craftfulness by Rosemary Davidson, and Arzu Tahsin, which is an “investigation of the wisdom generations of men and women know to be true: that making things is a vital means of self-expression, self-realization, and self-help that sparks the mind, touches the soul, and rejuvenates the spirit.”
You can find her print in our print shop now!
Artwork to inspire well being
Did you read the book? I LOVED it. Craftfulness shared so many thoughts I’d been thinking about for ages, namely how when we make things with our hands we are brought into a new state of being, one that touches our soul. As we’ve been sharing throughout the months, this is precisely the mission of Lars!
There’s no better way to cope with the stress of what’s going on in the world right now than to make things with your hands. Alejandra’s beautiful artwork is a reminder of that. In addition, her bold colors and shapes are such a breath of fresh air right now. It has been a strange adjustment spending more time at home than ever before. However, having a new art print on my wall cheered me right up! Updating the artwork around your home will can make it feel new without any major changes needed.
I encourage you to follow Alejandra’s work over on Instagram where you will be drawn in by her playful palette.
