Home Decor | Inspiration 

It is a hot one downtown today! Yet the heat is not deterring inspiration. I am being drawn to bold colors in art, in paint colors, and yes even in light fixtures ( Ello Purple Chandelier). Here are a couple pictures found on my Pinterest Home Decor page, that are giving me inspiration for our abode in the city. 

Also Featured | Art by J. Susan Schuler available at Malton Gallery. This oil on canvas piece, is even more exuberant and beautiful in person (if that is possible).  What or who do you think inspired Schuler’s abstract pieces?

Artist Statement  | Jonathan Cox 

"My father gave me my first toolbox when I was four. He cleared the trees from the land that he bought from my grandmother, and then used the wood from the trees to build the house that I grew up in. Before I was fourteen, we had built five boats together. The process that I engage in with my sculpture today usually begins with wood and with skills that I learned as a child. From there, I add whatever material will best communicate the idea. In recent years I have used a wide variety of materials, including cast glass, stainless steel, polyester, bronze, steel, aluminum, ceramic, paper, and stone. I am very excited about the current direction of my work. I am enjoying both the scale and the combination of materials in the installation-oriented pieces as well as the public art works.”-Jonathan Cox
