Modern Art

 Richard Diebenkorn and Milton Avery are among my favorite artists.

 

                           

 

                                                               

                                           

 

Diebenkorn carved his  landscapes with a palette knife and brush while Avery skillfully  ordered what he saw into balanced shapes of color.  So when I set my mind to creating a design that was looser and freer than what I normally do, I deferred to these two masters  as well as a number of lesser known artists working in the modern abstract medium  today. 

 

My goal was to create a design that was as vibrant as the art I see on walls. And since my "canvas" for the last 6 or so years has been  decorative home accessories, a lamp seemed a great place to start. A pair of Modern Art lamps would look stunning in an all white room.

 

                                          

 

Likewise  mixing a beautiful abstracted piece of art like the gouache painting below, with a  traditional wallpaper and a smart  red tartan adds just the right counterpoint.

 

                                         

 

 Mixing genre, scale and style is one way to maximize the dramatic effect of a room.

I adore the use of color. Especially impressed with the use of something like the antique tartanware juxtaposed with new fresh and vibrant design!
