A strong advocate for the pairing of fine art with elegant design, we partnered with Marcus Mohon Interiors to curate art selections that would compliment his graceful and inviting Breakfast Keeping Room at the 2020 Kips Bay Designer Showhouse in Dallas, Texas. For this project, we carefully selected works that offer a subtle palette and textural dimension to key areas of the space. We share works that highlight strong female Texas painters, such as visionary modernist Dorothy Hood’s large scale “Imitation of Upward” and the historic Toni LaSelle’s smaller treasure “Climate of the Heart”. In addition, we wanted to expose this audience to emerging superstars Josh Sperling and Alec Soth. Sperling’s “Bubbles”, an unexpected interplay of form and dimension, is composed of raw, natural canvas stretched over a carved wall-mounted sculpture, accentuating its line. Soth’s multi-dimensional photographic image is iconic for his style and evokes a passing memory or a glimpse of a stranger in a vibrant setting. Finally, Julia Kunin’s exquisitely-glazed iridescent totemic sculpture is the result of a focus on geologic forms and years of an artist residency in Hungary, mastering the uniquely-beautiful glazing techniques for which the country is known.
