Zoe Bios Creative was founded in Silver Lake, California in 2011.

Zoe Bios Creative has coined the term ‘ArtEntouré’ to express a full circle cross-pollination of the art world with the design world. “Our fusion of art and design inspires a vitality of meaning in the everyday, hopefully provoking a higher consciousness in the way we live with, and make use of objects.”

ZBC’s is also a traverse across cultures, understanding how the relativity of meaning thrives along side the persistent universality of beauty. “We focus on the visual organization of new forms—chance arrangements and purposeful compositions. We want to inspire unconventional thinking, and creative design solutions while maintaining a mindful attention to beauty and contentment in every object that we offer…we are artists, curators, and collaborators.”


Uncontrollable Beauty: Arousal by Image

David Freedberg, Pierre Matisse Professor of the History of Art and Director of the Italian Academy for Advanced Studies in America at Columbia University, reveals to us his thoughts on the act of looking and the problem of arousal in art, relating to various subjects that seem themed in Virgins and Magdalens. He views it as a cognitive relation between looking and enlivening. When an image becomes “alive” it stimulates desire, though it is something moving us to speak of colors and form. With images and art, there is a form of repression and coinciding with that repression is both arousal and rationalization. It is a paradox. In visual attention, there is a gaze, look, stare, which proceeds from the ontology of images in general…. This he finds, especially in the Western world, is often patriarchally determined and problematically neglectful of authentic female voices. He states how crucial the body is in images, as it appeals to the senses – as he calls one of the most fundamental fears – since it is often first to be erased in censorship.
