Morris Louis' Color Field

January 20, 2015

"I think that we realized that you didn't have to assert yourself as a personality in order to be personally expressive. We felt that we could deal solely with aesthetic issues, with the meaning of abstraction, without sacrificing individuality - or quality." - Kenneth Noland, referring to himself and Morris Louis. Morris Louis was an American painter most prominently known for his contribution to Color Field Painting. His depth and use of color are truly captivating and almost peaceful, but I will let the work speak for itself.

Inspired By: Backgammon in the Pool

July 22, 2014

How decadent is this? Imagine wasting a hot day away lounging in an aquamarine pool playing backgammon. I have a vintage backgammon table, but I won't be plopping its wood frame in the pool anytime soon! Although what I really want to find is a super hip hotel where backgammon in pools is a prerequisite. Know of one? Send it my way...

Rebirth in Blue

April 08, 2014

Time flies and I can’t believe it’s been almost 6 months since my last post, but when your body tells you it’s time to heal, you listen. So after battling some serious health issues over the last few months I am finally on the mend and feeling better than I have in years. And with much excitement, tomorrow we finally move to our new office. My mind has been racing with ideas for our new space and it’s gonna be good.

Inspired By: Constantin Brancusi

September 23, 2013

I can't think of any other sculptor that moves me like  Constantin Brancusi. Nine years ago while living in NYC for the summer, my best friend and I went to The Guggenheim to see the Brancusi exhibit. It was the most affecting exhibition either of us had seen. The fluid and abstract lines of his work set against Frank Lloyd Wright's coiled interior proved to be the perfect union.
