Art, in its myriad forms, can obviously come from one thousand different places and have prismatic, dispersive meanings to its creators and audience, but, when it comes down to it, I personally just want to get lost in a work—standing like Cameron in-front of that Seurat painting with all those kids filing along behind him. Point being, Bolognesi pulls us in, and you should check her out. Her prints make for a lovely gift, by the by. Also, I think that's Björk below!

Marion Bolognesi is a Brooklyn-based artist and deisgner who 'hopes to capture the emotion & beauty of her subjects without hindering the natural fluidity of her medium.' That sounds nice and all, but we just think she creates some down-right awesomely emotive, organic paintings that you could spend all day staring at.
