FIONA CAULFIELD VISITS THE STORE

Sun, 20 Nov 2011 at 13:57

It was a hot & vibrant afternoon, rose petals were scattered throughout the store & our wonderful crowd lapped up tales of the exotic whilst sipping on iced elderflower with a hint of rose water.

We were absolutely delighted to have Fiona Caulfield, self confessed 'luxury vagabond' & acclaimed journalist & author of the brilliant Love Travel Guides grace the store for an afternoon talk on the hidden treasures & experiences that lay within India & of course sign her beautiful guide books. From the textiles of Jaipur to the rivers of Goa & meandering stories of magic, amazing chai & everything in between we were all transported to a far away land & I think almost everyone has either booked a trip to India or will certainly be planning to visit in the near future. 

"Come to India, fall in love!"

Fiona's gorgeous guides are available in the LISA MADIGAN store at SHOP 1 . 70 ALBERT STREET . BERRY . NSW . AUSTRALIA & online, please click here to view.

KATE ARMSTRONG & LISA MADIGAN

Sun, 20 Nov 2011 at 12:02

We were thrilled to introduce textile designer KATE ARMSTRONG into our dedicated gallery space at the store in November 2011 with a collaborative exhibition with the works of LISA MADIGAN's salted grace collection.

Using LISA MADIGAN’s own recordings of the “beauty of wear”, Kate augmented forms & tones from within the paintings of the 'salted grace collection' in process of collaboration – where the space, designer, artist & visitors inform the outcome of the original design. A stunning textile installation & a harmonious exhibition ensued.

KATE ARMSTRONG worked with LISA MADIGAN to produce lengths of digital prints, specifically for the exhibition. Beautifully formed, expressive textures & forms within Lisa’s paintings were recorded & augmented into surface patterns, that when hung in the space, harness light & movement to be constantly dynamic and alive. The salted grace collection of luscious oil paintings by LISA MADIGAN hung beside the beautiful & dynamic textile installation of KATE ARMSTRONG, a stunning synergy, with the two work styles to be experienced in harmony. 

Statements by the designer & artist on their respective work...

"The Living Room is a tangible, generative print system which attempts to highlight the value of aged, worn mementos; re-connecting users with makers. By designing experience into products, emotional connections precede the rational; a stronger bond is formed. Perhaps if we connected more fully emotionally with our built environment, we wouldn’t acquire so much waste." KATE ARMSTRONG 

"I am concerned with not only what surrounds us but also what resides within. Painting intuitively, expressively, it’s an immediate act of communication, push and pull, a dynamic sensibility, momentum and meditation if you will, between myself and the canvas. Deeply inspired by and drawn from nature, drawn from within, teetering on the edge of the tactile, moving toward the esoteric, blurring those boundaries. The raw, the tangible, the sensual, the grand, the ethereal, the essence.

This collection of salted grace is as it’s name implies, beauty through texture and tooth, softness from strength, sensibility from bold gestures and fervent momentum, moving towards a sense of grace. The sweet is that much sweeter once you’ve tasted a little salt..." LISA MADIGAN

a beautiful wedding

Fri, 18 Nov 2011 at 15:19

A little while ago I was approached by a beautiful bride in need of a helping hand & a creative touch to bring some beautiful WOW to her big day.

Some of you may know that we offer a range of beautiful bespoke services which includes wedding & event styling. It's always a delight to bring something memorable & beautiful & perfectly suited to our clients, happy hearts all round!

I created the LISA MADIGAN signature cernterpiece on a grand scale for the gorgeous couple & their guests which sat in a white umbrella marquee on the edge of manicured gardens & overlooking country fields. In our vintage bottles I placed peonies & dusty miller { two of my personal favourites too & of course supplied by the divine Michelle Collison of Shady Fig } I hung tea light orbs & custom made pom poms & at night over their celebratory dinner it lit like a chandelier.

I also finished the tables that were laden with orange blossom, hydrangea & peonies to name a few { again by the wonderful Shady Fig } with a beautiful array of candle holders & pillars in old bottles. It was a simply sublime setting.

If you have a wedding or event coming up we would love to hear from you! Our range of services include prop hire, stationery & of course our speciality of creative consulting & the hands on styling of events to make them truly unique, memorable & beautiful.

Feel free to get in touch on info@lisamadigan.com.au or pop into the LISA MADIGAN store at SHOP 1 . 70 ALBERT STREET . BERRY to have a chat about your next big { or little  } event over a pot of tea.
