E.V. Day

I tend to gravitate towards artists that utilize or reference the body.. themes of desire.. the sensuous.. the grotesque.. body politics.. E.V. Day is one of my contemporary favorites as of late. What I am particularly fond of though is her pieces that utilize garments (imagine that).. These garments that are loaded in symbolism and situated in space, pulled in unnatural direction from various points via mechanism, fiberglass, resin, etc.. to create these abstracted forms, like an expressionist painting suspended three dimensionally.. but better.. because it isn't JUST about form.. it is conceptually loaded, playful, and sexually charged.  Images to follow, first image being from her earlier Tongue and Clam series.. not my favorite, but is visceral and striking in its own right.

Recent Acquisitions - Gifted or Purchased 12.2010

Here are some of my new favorite things, many of them gifted to me for my birthday/Christmas!  My husband and family spoiled me to death this year and got me frocks and shoes I had been eyeing for awhile!  I would much rather take photos of myself wearing them with my own sense of style but I have the flu and pajamas are the preferred uniform as of late.  I also got some solid color maxi dresses (long sleeve) but they aren't terribly exciting to look at via blog photo.  Love wearing them with platform shoes and chunky bracelets at the moment.  Got a few body suits as well.. you know, the snap crotch/bustier kind of things?  I was reluctant, but they look swell with all things drapey.. to me anyway.. ;)  Also got an abundance of VS unmentionables from my husband (he kicks ass at picking out lingerie, bras, and what not for me), a leatherette bra, new running shoes and gear, as well as an ihome, and iphone 4 accessories.  Score!

Here are some of the pieces..

The only thing better than a sky high black platform pump?  A sky high platform pumps with details such as these, my friends.

Snake piece.

 I find this piece to be a refreshing design for the ear with a sensuous wink to the 80s.  Unfortunately, it is already out of stock but I am hoping to find something of the like.  I vote for coupling it with something backless or strapless.

Flesh and Monochrome.

Photographed by Jenny Hands for Karen Magazine.

I love the drama of this series; the juxtaposition of a glam/fetish aesthetic with the enchanted forest backdrop..the stark blacks against her pale skin and platinum locks.. and of course.. the shoes.. the red lips.. Red lips sink ships.  Also particularly fond of the asymetric zip dress bottom right and bodysuit with bell sleeves.
