An Evening With Artist : Jennifer Ament x La Ree Boutique

Where do you seek inspiration, or if by chance, where does it find you?

What gives you pause and makes you take notice?

What stirs you? 


A NOTE FROM LA REE FOUNDER & PRINCIPAL, RACHAEL NOV

Mindfulness, discovering beauty and finding inspiration in the world that surrounds us is an ongoing conversation between us at La Ree Boutique. I wanted to explore this subject further by curating an intimate experience that would allow us to connect on a deeper level with one another, with our clients and our community. Art allows us to do that. Art is a catalyst. Art elicits an emotive response in all of us.

We are living in emotionally fueled times and now more than ever it is important for us to support the arts. Especially the artists within our community that are creating work that speaks to us socially, emotionally, as well as aesthetically. It’s essential to be able to have a conversation about what is going on in our world and find a common thread.

With this in mind, I am pleased to introduce An Evening With Artist; a quarterly gathering to eat, drink, and most importantly, feel inspired and connected through art and dialogue. We are honored to partner with artist Jennifer Ament for our premiere collective.

What first caught my attention about Jen and her artwork is she’s this creative powerhouse and a general badass that doesn’t hold any punches. Yet when you’re in her presence she exudes this quiet confidence and there is this palpable feeling of calm connectedness. Her progressive vision and voice shine through in her paintings.  Join us, the evening of July 26th to see for yourself! xx 

 


ARTIST STATEMENT

Using a blowtorch like a paintbrush, I create abstract encaustic paintings – organic interpretations of minerals, landscapes, and celestial forms. Encaustic allows me to slowly construct and hide imagery as if we’re looking at something under the surface of a frozen lake or discovering the secrets embedded in an agate. I’m interested in the dualities of revelation and concealment, depth and surface, past and present.

My process is intuitive and experimental, but strongly connected to history. I use traditional encaustic materials and processes – beeswax, damar resin, and colored pigment on wood panels – combining tradition with contemporary expressionism and hints of personal narrative.

I experiment with scale as well. Larger panels (up to 60 inches across) surround us in ethereal topographies and smaller (12 inch) works draw us into intimate encounters with texture and depth.

Golden River Through Our Minds

While my paintings are not literal, they can refer to personal memories or physical encounters with the natural world. I frequently draw on my involvement in street culture, the underground music scene and my love of the rugged natural environment of the Pacific Northwest. Titles such as Sex with Drake or Crash of Winter allude to these personal connections but it is also important that the works open up far beyond myself

I strive to create paintings that are, themselves, immersive experiences, evoking sensations that are fluid and meditative but edged with intensity. I am often inspired by loose, soft, natural phenomena but like to combine these elements with stronger forces. Again, contrasts appeal to me, like the beauty of a decaying, fallen tree or a painful memory softened over time. 

Sex With Drake

Shoes, Shoes, Shoes – Robert Clergerie & Isabel Marant New Arrivals

“Life is short, buy the shoes.” We have to say we are die hard believers in this mentality. If something is beautiful and it makes you happy, you will enjoy having it in your life. And what we love most about the shoes we have in store now is that they are not only beautiful, but they are also practical. These are shoes that will become your go to. They are comfortable, with a heel that is easy to walk in, either chunky, or low, or both! Plus, each shoe has that special something about it that will add that spice to your outfit and inspire shoe envy in everyone you walk by. IMG_0410

Feelin’ Golden
We can’t help but kick up our heels just a little higher when we’re wearing these Robert Clergerie Keyla Boots. A simple shoe from the front, it is all style from the back. This shoe is simple enough to be dressed down (as we’ve done here), and classy enough to be dressed up.

Update the Classics 
We love our black pumps. You can wear those things anywhere. But, these Robert Clergerie Kenneth Heels are going to give those pumps a run for their money. Comfortable enough to wear all day (chunky heel? Yes, please), and stylish enough to make a statement, these are a business wardrobe must-haves.

Leap into Leopard: Pre-Fall Looks You Can Wear All Summer

What is pre-fall anyway? As you may have guessed by the name, it is the fashion “seaonlet” that comes before fall but after spring/summer. The pre-fall seasonlet is similar in size to resort season, which comes before summer/spring and is designed to fit people’s vacation style fancies. It is a smaller collection put out by designers to transition between the seasons. Sometimes pre-fall collections will give a hint of what is to come or they can be an extension of the spring/summer line, and other times they stand alone. Even though we’re just barely making it to summer in Seattle, we’re in full pre-fall season at La Ree! One of our favorite forever prints is big this pre-fall—leopard. We’ve selected a few of the great leopard print pieces available now in La Ree.

Nili Lotan Camo Sweater and Viviana PantSilky Sleek
Summer or fall, these silk Nili Lotan leopard pants can be styled to show off your wild side or your house cat side. Pair with a sweater for cool summer nights. Spice up the look by mixing prints, then tone it down with a solid pair of Golden Goose sneakers.

Memorial Day Weekend is Here! What to Wear

It’s hard to believe but we are already at Memorial Day weekend! If you’re like us and are constantly caught off guard by the rapid pace of time, we’ve got your Memorial Day style covered. Still haven’t planned what to wear? Check out a few of our favorite Memorial Day looks for the long weekend.

Memorial Day Weekend Weather

The weather looks like it will be partly cloudy with highs in the high 60s. Sounds like paradise to us locals.

Memorial Day Style

Simply Sweet
One of our favorite looks for a Memorial Day celebration is the classic simple summer dress. This Ulla Johnson dress is stunning, comfortable, and perfect for a backyard BBQ. As the temperatures cools down into the evening, pair with your favorite white or blue denim jacket. Bonus, this dress has pockets!
Wearing: Ulla Johnson Citra Dress | Beek Seabird Sandal

Memorial Day Style

Love of Layers
What’s more fun than layering? Layering may seem like a little bit of a challenge, but to us, it’s just another opportunity to wear as much of our favorite pieces as possible. This versatile jacket is a great summer snag. It is light and can be tossed over your spring and summer wardrobe with ease and style. Add a little extra to any casual outfit with subtle sparkle and some killer accessories.
Wearing: The Great Sergeant Jacket | Tee Lab Layering Tank | Tee Lab Pink Skirt | Ancient Greek Metallic Sandals | Peanut Wood Ring

Memorial Day Style

Summertime Sunshine
We know that “partly cloudy” means not quite warm enough to get away without a jacket all day. But we also know that Memorial Day is the official kick off to summer. So we’re dressing the part. Laid back and ready for sunshine, we’re loving these jean shorts paired with an easy top, and the Yosuzi bag and hat.
Wearing: R13 Denim Shorts | Veronica Beard Silk Tank | Ancient Greek Black Slide Sandals | Jewels By Piper Bone Necklace | Yosuzi Hat | Yosuzi Kasha Bag

Memorial Day Style

Classic Cool
They say you’re not supposed to wear white before Memorial Day. We don’t really agree with that (who doesn’t love their winter whites?!), but we’re willing to play along. It’s officially time to rock that white denim all summer long. Pair with a cute clutch and patterned top to add a little extra something to your style.
Wearing: Nili Lotan Cleo Blouse | *NEW* 6397 Shorty Jean | Robert Clergerie Slide |

Graduation Party Style: What to Wear

Congratulations to the class of 2018!! Whether it be high school or college, it’s time to celebrate! If you’re attending a graduation and/or graduation party this summer, we know how proud you are of the recent grad, but we also know there might be something else on your mind… what will you be wearing to the festivities? We want you to find an outfit that you are comfortable in while sitting throughout the graduation, while hugging the recent grad, while jumping up and down trying to get photos, and of course, while celebrating at the grad party. If you’ve been pulling a classic student move and procrastinating, we’ve got you covered. We’ve prepared a few graduation party looks that are now available at La Ree!

Graduation Party Style Pomp and Circumstance Style
It’s okay to admit it, you want to be comfortable while sitting waiting for graduation speeches to end so you can leap up and snap a photo of the grad walking across the stage. And you’re going to be sitting for a while, because you got there early to get a good seat, of course. Long sleeves and paired with a long maxi skirt will keep you warm or cool no matter the weather.

Barbecues can be hot. Wearing a light and loose dress will ensure that you enjoy every moment of the party. Then, pair with a favorite jean jacket as the sun goes down.
Wearing: Raquel Allegra Check Shirt Dress, Ampersand as Apostrophe Sideways Tote, ATP Lecola Heel

Graduation Style Brunch Celebration Style
If you’re traveling for a grad, you’ll want to get as much time with them as you can. Brunch the day after the graduation is likely in order. This look is perfect for brunch because it is easy to pack, easy to throw on and looks great no matter where brunch is (at home or at a restaurant). Plus, if you’re hopping on a plane right after brunch, switch out the heels for flats, and your’e ready to fly.
