Latest Love: Alexander Gorlizki

Lovin the works on paper by New York-based artist Alexander Gorlizki, often no bigger than a sheet of notebook paper, and each stunningly intricate. Each piece is delicately rendered using single-hair brushes and hand-ground pigments then highlighted with gold leaf. Drawing upon the traditions of Indian-miniature-style watercolors and manuscript illumination, Gorlizki’s surreal and whimsical works depict miniature scenes upon intricate patterns inspired by sources varying from Central Asian textiles to Victorian wallpaper.
