Thoughts from the new issue with editor Alice Lines

The process of collecting is something that endlessly intrigues me, and when I get the chance to peek inside people’s homes and studios, I love hearing the stories behind the art, objects, books, plants and ephemera they choose to surround themselves with.When I was a kid, I collected elephants, and every time someone in my […]

Absolute goddess

Sometimes a trend comes seemingly out of nowhere to reawaken a collective appreciation for a look that had fallen off the mainstream radar. The re-emergence of ancient Greek mythology and art into vogue has led Sydney’s Figure Féminine to craft a line of lady-like sculptures and candles.

It made me realise […]
