Sugar Tooth

Ohmygoodnessohmygoodness! I had to share this with you right away! Have you heard of the artist group Pip and Pop? This is the info from their facebook page:

Pip & Pop are an artist duo from Western Australia. Pip & Pop explore utopian and paradisiacal worlds, drawing upon many cultures' folk & fairy tales, creation mythology, Buddhist cosmologies and contemporary pop culture. In exploring the aesthetics of super-abundance, Pip & Pop use a vast collection of made and found materials.

They are Australian-based duo Nicole Andrijevic and Tanya Schult and their work is currently on exhibition at Brisbane's Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA). Their show is called "We Miss You Magic Land" and it's making my hear all aflutter. Check out thisarticle for more info on their show.

All of the pictures here are taken from their facebook page and are not just images from their GoMA show. You can Like them here.

I also found this sweetie-pie video while on my search for all things Pip and Pop. I'm not sure if it is in the exhibition or what the story is about it but it's just as wonderful as the work.

My plan was to wait until after the first of the year to start blogging again. I wanted to get my brain refreshed and then really start putting my energy into posting daily and keeping up with this blog a lot better. Pip and Pop changed all of that. I was just too excited to show this. My friends and I all dream of one day living together in a small town or village and creating our own artist's commune. I think this is what it would look like.

I hope you are as inspired as I am!
