Sandhi Schimmel Gold is an extraordinary artist whose work is featured in private and corporate collections in the US, Asia and Europe and several galleries.
“My work reflects our society’s obsession with beauty through advertising – and the endless images that bombard us daily. It is a purposeful intermix of images derived from advertising and thousands of incongruent pieces – images and text – from advertising that arrives through my mailbox. Assembled like a mosaic; the paper tiles create an entirely new image – an eclectic and tactile portrait reworked in my imagination, utilizing materials that would otherwise go to waste.”
- Sandhi Schimmel Gold
Amazing architecture project by Bernardo Rodrigues.
“Portuguese studio Bernardo Rodrigues Arquitecto has completed ‘house on the flight of birds’, a single family home on St. Michael Island in the Azores, Portugal. Informed by the landscape and the prevalent high winds and rain, the design looks to establish a strategy that allows the family to remain connected and exposed to the outdoors regardless of the conditions.
A series of stacked and intersecting volumes are linked by a dominant contoured form, which appears to cut directly through the home. Developing a collection of variously sized sheltered terraces and an undulating roof top patio, the contrasting expression along with a dominant red wall, both defines the overall aesthetic and the organization of space.”
