Bananas for Grownups

For an easy-to-fix treat, try this.

Taking some time on the beach next week to dream and refresh. Will touch base on my return.


Safari Style

I am usually not a big fan of the Safari style of interiors that foster a feeling of living elegantly in the bush. I was captivated, however, by the work of Silvio Retch in his interpretations of the Makalali camps on the banks of the Makhutswi River.

He has captured African traditions through the layouts, circular domes, and rough-looking wood work. As illustrated in South Africa, Private Worlds, Retch creates spaces that are warm and inviting. Something to think about for your next cabin in the woods.

Mark Bradford

“Visually stunning, psychologically and intellectually bracing” are the words that director Sherri Geldin used to describe Mark Bradford’s work, as profiled in the recent Conscience Voice magazine, this young dynamitic artist is breaking new ground .

His exhibition, a critical success at the at the Wexner Center in Columbus, Ohio, has been extended to October. Don’t miss it.
