Welcome to the Midnight Boheme Blog website, created by me-- Laura Kuhn-- as a portal into my mind. Here I wish to showcase a few of my favorite things, the music, films, artwork and words that inspire my creative endeavors.
From an early age, I have carried a love and passion for the arts. With a keen eye for style, a love of painting, writing, photography, and design, and a restless curiosity for the avant-garde, my transformation into an eclectic bohemian artist began unexpectedly. Although I grew up with minimal exposure to culture, it was a trip to New York at the age of seven that widened my eyes to a world of Broadway lights, chockablock civilization, and big city scandal.
Through my late teens and early twenties, I took a personal interest in Arthurian legend, ancient mythology, and the utterly intriguing realm of aesthetics, whether through sensory, sentiment, morality, or sublime expression.
It is theatre and film, burlesque and vaudeville, jazz and the golden age of old Hollywood that lends to my vagabond style. It is the literature of Poe, Wilde, and Baudelaire, the art of Degas, Dali, and Waterhouse, and the genius of E.J. Bellocq, Loreena McKennitt, and the Marquis de Sade that inspires my stunningly hypnotic designs.
In the evocative world of Midnight Boheme's creations, spotlighting the human figure and the method of chiaroscuro through the contrast of light and shadow, my acrylic and mixed media compositions use a rich and vivid palette to emphasize the poetry of painting.
The art of life is to live in the moment, and as the plot thickens, the chanteuse sings, and the epicures dine, I strive to embrace the lifestyle of an enlightened aesthete. Dream, desire, and design ~ these are the artful tools escorting old-world glamour into this millennium of cybernation.
