Keith Barrell NDD. ATC.(LON.)  - Classical roots with a modern touch

Keith BarrellOver the past 6 months I have been able to devote my time more exclusively to working in new directions that involve imaginative reviews of landscape, natural and elemental and organic sources that surround us.

I have looked more closely at ways of depicting surface and form in a semi-abstract manner. That has expanded my understanding and use of a broader range of media, in a more expressive and gestural way.

This has led me to bring together both 2 and 3 dimensional processes within a single composition.

When Valentino executes excess, it's always elevated, and it always exudes the highest level of craftsmanship (just take a peek at the short video below to see what I mean). An exotic, hand-touched mood has struck for spring, and it's materialized in the form of intricate laser-cut details and replica handbags a well-traveled tribal motif. I have to say the house has outdone itself. These embellishments are designed to transfix, like hand-painted panels topped with cabochon stones, as seen on the My Rockstud prada replica handbags tote, and leather embroidered in a subdued rainbow of infinite beads and rhinestones, featured on the embellished Lock crossbody. The result: bags that are for a feast for the eyes - and a chanel replica treat for your hands. Antique gold hardware prevents any hint of overt flashiness. Although, there's no doubt these collector-worthy pieces won't garner plenty of attention, not to mention envy. My Rockstud replica handbags uk single handle bag and the embellished Lock small chain crossbody are currently available at Valentino.
