LOS ANGELES | MOCA PACIFIC DESIGN CENTER | FEBRUARY 7 - MAY 17, 2015
Favorite works from Bernhard Willhelm 3000: When Fashion Shows The Danger Then Fashion Is The Danger on exhibition at MOCA Pacific Design Center. Featuring the work of designers Bernhard Willhelm and Jutta Kraus in their first American museum exhibition, the show follows the relocation of Willhelm and his Paris-based studio team (headed by Kraus) to Los Angeles. Alongside Willhelm's Fall/Winter 2015–16 collection are sculptural works, video, photography, and the collective energy of a site-specific project where friends like Malcom Stewart lend a helping hand in adding extra spray paint and fun.

Deon Rubi is the Nom de Guerre of artist and designer Lucila Garcia De Onrubia. Originally from Argentina, DEONRUBI was given to the artist by the American school system and since, became the moniker for all of her creative practices. From being featured in the Perez Art Museum Miami (PAMM Shop) to collaborations with artists like Magnus Sodamin, and her iconic graphics by Miami muralist Serge Toussaint, Deon Rubi has become a recognized name within the Miami community.
Both fans of expanding the experience of art through wearable works, Natology's collaboration and representation of Deon Rubi was as natural as the hand-shaped acrylic pieces in this exclusive series of Wearable Sculpture. Deon Rubi was featured by Natology at Scope Miami Beach 2014 and welcomed into various private collections including prominent New York City collector and art matron Elizabeth A Sackler.
Below is the Wearable Sculpture collection for Natology and images from our first studio visit where Deon Rubi's blend of minimalist design, traditional jewelry technique and repurposed materials made its way into my heart.
In the spirit of creating wearables based on an artistic series, David Tamargo presents a line of jewelry inspired by Urban Hunting. A Natology selection and wonderful gift, Urban Hunting brings situational fantasy into a handmade line of works commemorating the swampy icons of Floridian wildlife.
