i’m jealous of aris moore

aris

I could not decide what made me the most jealous of Aris Moore – her sketchbook, her paintings or her collages – so I’m showing a bit of each. I’m a sucker for an animal head on a human body, I even have a few of them in my own portfolio, but they’re not quite like this… hence the jealousy. These look effortless, lovely and a little bit sad. Now, that said, I’ve never actually tried to make a polar bear or a rabbit look sad, but I’m guessing it’s a bit tricky.

    I couldn’t agree more. And I just have to add, this is art karma at it’s finest… I found her because she wrote about me! Imagine how thrilled I was not only to be written about, but to stumble onto such an amazing artist! I love it when that happens.

    If you are impressed by this woman’s work you may be very interested in the work of Camilla Engman:

    http://camillaengman.blogspot.com/

    For her work is TRULY original.

  15. The Jealous Curator /// 02.20.2010 /// 5:48pm

    Thanks Mandy. I’ve actually written about Camilla twice… and you’re right, so original! Love her : )

    OK everyone, some of this stuff is good but most is very silly, it’s very appealing to the adolescent in everyone, which I suppose is nice but really it’s very old hat and I can think of many many illustrators who do this type of work and better.

    i did read that when it was first posted… and it made me really angry actually. aris is a very gifted artist, and the work that this person is referencing is from AGES ago. perhaps aris was influenced by camilla at some point, as she was playing around and trying new things, but maybe not. there is a lot of work out there that looks very similar. i’ve done all sorts of things that i think are original and wonderful and then i’ll stumble on someone’s portfolio that is almost exactly the same! (it’s astonishing actually). anyway, you all know that i don’t say anything negative on this site… i’m not sure why anyone would publish something so rude and accusatory without doing a little further research. see? pretty angry.

  19. the jealous curator /// 02.17.2012 /// 2:38pm

    ann, i would suggest that you look at aris’ current work… she is almost finished her mba, and her work has changed dramatically.
