A lifelong artist, New Orleans-based Jamie Winn (@ghostlightgallery) isn’t afraid to feature the things we all take for granted.⁣ ⁣ “I like for my work to feature the idea of longevity by being forced to confront the forgotten and neglected,” says Jamie, who has been creating her wooden and watercolored kinetic sculptures for the last 10 years. “Halloween in particular celebrates the idea of old ghosts. I like the idea that even though these are not perhaps the typical ideas of ‘beauty,’ as far as some art is concerned, there is indeed something beautiful about something that has been lost or fallen to ruin, reclaimed or reinvented.⁣ ⁣ For this piece, which is titled ‘Still Here,’ I was inspired by the old idea that some people were oftentimes misdiagnosed as ‘dead,’ and there was the need to create a contraption to alert the caregivers that the person had been in fact buried alive. This is where the term ‘dead ringer’ or ‘saved by the bell’ comes from.” 💀🏚⁣ ⁣ #ThisWeekOnInstagram⁣ ⁣ Video by @ghostlightgallery

Artist Lorien Stern (@lorienstern) wants you to find inspiration and happiness wherever you can.⁣⁣ 🍂👻🍂 ⁣⁣ The California-based ceramicist, painter and designer finds lots of joy in the natural world, especially the animal kingdom. “Animals always held a special place in my heart. When I was 8 years old, my father passed away. I adopted seven cats and my connection with them helped me cope with the loss more than anything else.”⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Lorien’s work often celebrates the afterlife and loved ones lost. For example, she makes ghosts as a way to honor her late father and disarm her fears by adding positive associations to potentially scary subjects.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Did we mention today is Lorien’s 30th birthday?!⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ “My birthday lands close to Halloween, so sometimes I combine the two — usually with costumes, drinks and scary movies.”⁣⁣ 🎂🎃 ⁣⁣ #ThisWeekOnInstagram⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Art by @lorienstern; Video by @byjenniferruiz⁣⁣
