Art Confidant

james_picture

In my work, I’m involved in every aspect of the decorative process – this allows me to put together a really unified point of view – a total vision – to this end, I’m often quite involved in the selection of art. I’ve always had a passion for art and artists, and have a handsome collection myself – naturally my clients come to me for advise on their own art collection.

I’m always on the lookout for brilliant up and coming artists. On a recent visit to the super chic Treillage boutique I was taken by the heroically scaled work of artist Sara Graham. Pictured here is a water color and gouache artichoke painting on handmade paper – all in ultra luscious shades of green, turquoise and purple – beautiful! – I’ll be sure to keep this fine work in mind for the appropriate project.

I’m sporting a black linen denim jacket with black suede elbow patches by Gucci, a Turnbull and Asser shirt in purple cotton with contrast white collar and french cuffs, Seaman Schepps cuff links in precious turquoise, Charvet Paris turquoise silk pocket square, white and charcoal pinstripe cotton pants by Gucci, silver chain link belt by Gucci, Lanvin teal suede sneakers and glasses by Dior.

    James, That is a very iconic image. I like your positioning in this portrait. Treillage is a great shop, my old friend Sandra used to work there. I remember attending a party there, and Bunny had this catererer with the best food. And Albert popped in too. I think it’s great that art and artists are part of your life, so many people have no concept of enrichment. I will never forget going to Angelo Donghia’s townhouse in the 1970’s, and seeing the big watercolors by Richard Giglio he had hanging in his fabulous deep turquoise lacquered drawing room, with the satin upholstery, and Coco Chanel’s coromandel screen ! WOW !!!
