This week I had the pleasure of meeting adopted Aussies Lucy Guernier and Andy Buchanan, co-founders of Stolen, a beautiful coffee table book featuring handmade art from around the globe. In this cropped, filtered, photoshopped digital world we live in it’s refreshing to flick through the pages of a book filled with the imperfections of a grainy film camera, a candid polaroid snap, handwritten musings, sketches and paintings.
The brief was simple; unfinished, unplanned, unposed, handmade or hand-drawn. In a nice change of pace, imperfection is smiled upon at Stolen. With just over a week to go until submissions close for Volume Two, I asked Lucy and Andy to share their favourite Australian artists featured in Stolen Volume One.
