An art lover, I’ve never been one to advocate that any work be shoehorned into a color scheme: a Jackson Pollack because it matches the confetti-colored sofa? (To wit, I also don’t care for matching my toe and finger nail lacquer shades.)
Yet art, the art you want to proudly enjoy in your home or any environment you spend time in, can and, depending on the work, should dictate the design of a space.
“Designing with Art,” and all it entails, is the thread of a 60-minute chat I’ll be moderating Wednesday, April 30, as part of the Saatchi Art speaker series (an arm of the London-based uber gallery that was launched in 2006 to enable artists to exhibit, promote and sell art online). The evening inaugurates the new space in Culver City for the online art gallery, and joining me on the panel will be award-winning interior designer Trip Haenisch and the chief curator of Saatchi Art, Rebecca Wilson.
The free evening promises to be rich in insight and advice on the best practices when designing with art.
