Once again, our friends at Platform have included us in a new venture they have been exploring (with much success I might add). Platform has entered the world of home-staging in Los Angeles. Not your average home-staging however, they offer a very unique aesthetic viewpoint, spotlighting all local artists/crafts people, and offer all of their items for sale. The most recent home is located in the Silverlake neighborhood, where beautiful mid-century homes are found in lush surroundings. This particular abode included a pool and an incredible view of the reservoir (the closest thing to a lake in Los Angeles).
Both Roger and my work are featured throughout the home. This particular venture was very exciting because there are not many other options for a 6′x 6′ painting to go (in our house) after a show! I have always thought it would be a great pairing for artists and designers to team up to do home-staging…..and like this city tends to do….it happened! That is one of the things about Los Angeles that continues to amaze me, you have the possibility to really make anything happen here. It is sooooooo exciting and a testament to some of the wonderful people we have met here in the city. Below are photos of our work in the home. We would like to thank Sarah and Alex for their continued support of local Los Angeles artists!
As much as this blog is about news, I always want it to be about the process it takes to get to that point. So, in staying true to my vision…..I have included a few “progress” shots the large painting (in particular) has gone through in the year it took me to complete it. It is fun to take photos after each studio session, because I am basically a schizophrenic painter and each day I see something completely new I can do to a piece, sometimes good, sometimes making it worse. In showing you this, I hope to introduce a new way of seeing the work. That there is sooo much that goes into each painting and most of it, you may not even see in the end!
