From Susan’s website:
“I make marks.
Big and little.
Thick and thin.
Dark and light.
Smooth, bumpy, square, round, curvy, and straight marks.
The lines and shapes in my work are drawn from imagery and symbols I observe in the work around me. I use marks, layers, color, texture, and shapes to make the surface interesting, change the plan, create curiosity about what’s underneath, and surprise myself. My process is a combination of intuitive drawing, conscious shaping and layering, and searching for my spontaneous 5-year old self.”
Stop by the Vastu showroom and gallery to see these expressive and colorful pieces of art through February 2014.

Designed in 2011 by Philippe Starck, the D’E Light was one of the first Flos lighting products to combine luxury lighting with consumer technology by way of the built-in Apple 30-pin connector/charging port. You could seamlessly charge your iPhone or iPad while providing your space with LED task lighting.
Flos has kept up with Apple and other mobile device manufacturers by releasing the D’E Light in two new iterations.
- The D’E-Light with Apple Lightning Connector that works with iPhone 5 and later, iPad with retina display and iPad Mini.
- The D’E-Light with mini-USB connector that works all non-Apple devices like those from HTC, BlackBerry, Samsung Galaxy and Google Nexus.
This is just one more way that Flos has shown us that even beyond their 50th Anniversary, they are keeping up with modern tech innovations.
We are proud to introduce artist Ian Sklarsky to the Vastu gallery and showroom!
Sklarsky is a New York-based artist, illustrator, and filmmaker who specializes in blind contour drawing.
“Blind contour refers to a method of drawing in which the artist draws a line and never looks at the paper. It takes what one sees with one’s eye and with study allows the hand to trace the image from one’s brain.”
“Although some portraits or drawings might have to be redone, most of the time the errors are what brings out the character. We are not perfect, we can’t be. To quote my friend, the performance artist Taylor Mac, ‘Perfection is for Assholes.’ Our world is so driven to perfection that we often stop what we are doing simply because we know we cannot be perfect at it. GO – DO IT. FAIL. Failing is just another term for perfecting an action. If your science experiment blows up, you go back and do it again, and with some more errors, you might even get it right. Enjoy being imperfect. That’s the best part about people, we can be.”
Come experience Sklarsky’s blind contour creations during our Opening Reception on Thursday, October 17th while enjoying beverages from Cork Market. During the opening reception of “Ian Sklarsky; – Amazing Contours” Sklarsky will be creating blind contour portraits of our guests live and you will have the opportunity to purchase your very own portrait!
