Dear Gentle Readers,
I have a special treat for you today. Our own Parker Kaufman has graciously shared with us his latest creation, 1950's Kool Kats. I hope you love it as much as you do!
P. S. Miss you, Parker.
In Parker's own words:
"I have an affinity for all things Mid-Century. I am obsessed with the architecture and design. Frank Lloyd Wright, Le Corbusier, Miles Van de Roche, Herman Miller, Charles and Ray Eames. This is my list of top iconic architects and designers of mid-century modern style.
“I wanted to create art with the attributes indicative of Post-war American design. Organic, quirky, geometrics. Bold colors. Mod, curvy, Atomic Age patterns. Sleek, cool, sophisticated, sculptural shapes.
"Inspired by all those characteristics, my latest work, a 16" x 20" composition of 78 hand-cut yardstick pieces, layered on foam board."
