This past weekend, the Clutter Magazine Crew saw two amazing artist bring together a duo exhibition, Julie West presenting her work in The Dandy and Kelly Denato showcasing her pieces in Fall into Frost at myplasticheart.

"Fall Into Frost is a series of paintings and drawings.  Autumn to Winter is a brilliant and enigmatic change of season – at least for those of us who experience the 4 seasons.  The treetops and ground are covered in these tiny, quivering, prismatic carcasses. Deep greens explode into golds, reds, and pinks. A last colorful burst before the world goes grey.  Animals scurry about to consume, save, and store for the coming months.  The wind begins to chill and blow and our breath becomes visible, vapors of escaping spirit.  It is a time of transition, a decent from the apex of a climb to life that began in spring. Blooms, blossoms, bulbs, sprouts, and seeds have all reached the end of their cycle and now begin to retreat into dormancy or death.  This transition from dynamism to oblivion, vibrant to bleached, the idea that instead of a slow decay, something can be it’s most beautiful just before it’s dust – “last vivid gasp before the frost.”, m.d. – these are the motivations behind Fall Into Frost." - Says Denato in her myplasticheart interview
