I am addicted to restoring old pieces of furniture that I find. Each piece of furniture that I refurbish has a story to tell. This chair was full of horse hair and springs, dating back to somewhere around the 1930’s.
I found this beat up rocking chair sitting in the street, for free. For less than $40.00, I gave this old girl a lift, a tuck and a snip! I chose not to fix every nook and cranny because I want some of the wear and tear to show, some of it’s history. I had some left over fabric, so I made a quick pillow.
I think this is super cool art!!

Inspired by H.P. Lovecraft’s dark cosmology and horror films, Portland-based artist Jim Kazanjian creates surreal architectural photo collages. Kazanjian never takes any photographs himself, but instead combines as many as 50 images found on the internet to create each collage in the series. “My method of construction has an improvisational and random quality to it, since it is largely driven by the source material I have available,” says Kazanjian. “I think of the work as a type of mutation which can haphazardly spawn in numerous and unpredictable directions.” The result: a surreal world in black and white.
