VIRGINE. was a new innovative high fashion, art and music magazine set to revolutionize the way people interact with the fashion industry. I’m not quite sure if they are still around, but I found some really great imagery from a shoot for their magazine. This bridge (photos below) of current fashion trends with sculpture has such cross-over of platforms, that they have succeeded in my mind. They certainly aren’t afraid to push the envelope.

“VIRGINE is about what people want, not just what the fashion industry thinks people want.” “Truth be told, the equation of fashion is not as one-sided as it seems. Just as fashion works from the top down, so too does it work from the bottom up. In other words, trends are created in both directions. Acknowledging that truth is at the top of VIRGINE’s list. The bigger picture for the VIRGINE brand is to inspire change.”

The medium that artists choose can be widely varied. The end result is something that inspires and awes because, sometimes, the art is so transformed we can’t even tell how it was created or with what. We’ve seen art with paper, art with string, art with plastic from the ocean, and even art with salt and matches, so of course Baptiste Debombourg’s Staple art is the next logical step in turning something ordinary into something extraordinary.

Artist Baptiste Debombourg uses staples to create works of art. Far from their usual function as an office supply, the staples are assigned new value in his portraits. Just check out the detail.

Mixed Media artist Amy Rice has a very unique and eclectic way of working with various natural media. It must be so much fun to watch her work in person. She works with various textiles, paint, cotton canvases, potato stamps, spray paints and hand drawn stencils to create very soft and engaging pieces. I think more than anything I am drawn to the textural quality of her designs.
