Sarah Emerson is an artist based in Atlanta, Georgia. Her paintings and installations present viewers with highly stylized versions of nature that combine geometric patterns and mythic archetypes to examine contemporary landscape.  She uses the camouflage of beautiful colors combined with a deliberate composition to explore themes that reflect on the fragility of life, the futility of earthly pleasures, and the disintegration of our natural landscape.

Sunday Shuffle: Atlas Sound “Mona Lisa”

We are always going to applaud the work of Bradford Cox and his Deerhunter works, but this is one of our all-time favorite songs from the Atlanta songwriter. Almost as if this could be heard on the radio in the 1970s.

Weakness Wednesday: Deerhunter “Desire Lines”

This isn’t really a guilty pleasure type song, because it is one of the best songs from one of the better American bands of this generation, Atlanta’s Deerhunter. And oddly, for all their progressive pop sounds, this is sort of jam song, with an extended outro that sounds like a very good use of hallucinogens.

The Selby will show at Jackson Fine Art in Atlanta

Posted from The Citrus Report

We like The Selby, aka Todd Selby. He does a nice job with the camera and going to interesting people’s houses and showing that they live better than you and I. A lot better. At least, we assume you don’t live in a well-designed, well spaced space.

The Selby will be showing at Jackson Fine Art in Atlanta, Georgia from FRI JAN 21 2011 — FRI MAR 25 2011. We are not going to be in Atlanta, but now we want to.
