FRED EERDEKENS (*1950 Hasselt, BE) he is perhaps most well known for his shadow text work in copper and aluminum. these quiet and poetic installations combine a viruosic use of materials with simplicity that both subverts and elevates language. beyond just the simple metal phrases and sentences, Eerdekends has worked with such diverse mundane materials as discarded clothing and artificial trees, transformed by the simple application of light. by utilizing the physical nature of his medium, he creates art that blurs the line between reality and perception. his installations have been shown extensively at museums and galleries worldwide, and is featured in major collections such as MUHKA Antwerp / SMAK Brussels / Museo d’Arte Moderno Bolzano and FRAC Languedoc-Rousillon, among others. as well, he has completed a number of large, site specific installations, for important public and private spaces.

Lives and works in New York, NY
Influenced by his background in filmmaking, New York based artist Greg Haberny’s goal for his installations is to transform the gallery space into an all-encompassing experience of sight and sound. The production and direction of installations echoes his personal background in filmmaking while allowing strong personal expression and freedom with all forms of artistic medium. With cultural iconography and a sardonic sense of humor, Haberny’s installations engulf and challenge viewers, exaggerating the circus-like frenzy of media and marketing of fear in contemporary American society.
Haberny produces individual pieces that he then incorporates into larger installations. His process involves cutting, scraping, and affixing painted and found elements including vintage comics, pin-up girls, and advertisements to create heavily worked pieces that retain the evidence of damage or trauma. Thus his works evoke the pained physicality of bruises and broken bones, which reflects the shattered cultural makeup of our contemporary wasteland.

aww, I love this simple and chic black and white look. her blue eyes and red lips stick out beautifully like this. she is wearing 3 essential key pieces:
black flats black skinny jeans white blouse
every wardrobe should have these 3 things as they make it so easy to form an outfit around. you can always wear a good pair of black flats with everything. the same with the black skinny jeans – it will always work, either with heels, a blazer or with a cashmere sweater and of course the same with master key piece the white blouse!
I can not get enough from this! smooch proof lip stain 16 h – well to be honest.. it doesnt last that long.. especially after eating i have to reapply but the matte ruby red is a perfect shade for everyday!
