WHAT IS JAMES WEARING? Rotating Header Image

Helen Frankenthaler

James Andrew and Frankenthaler.

My clients look to me when it comes to selecting art for the interiors that we create together. I love art and make a point of knowing what is available – it’s always a pleasure to help my clients find that perfect picture or object – something to enhance and elevate their lives while bringing an interior to that truly sublime level. On a recent reconnaissance mission WIJW spotted some exceptional resources at “The Art Show” here in New York City – Certainly one of the highlights was the John Berggruen Gallery and two spectacular Helen Frankenthaler paintings – Bride’s Door and Orange Underline. Clear, colorful and unencumbered, these iconic works would resonate perfectly with my signature design mix, which incorporates both fine contemporary and well selected classical elements.

If you are a fan of Frankenthaler as I am, you’ll be happy to know that the John Berggreun Gallery will be having an exhibition of Frankenthaler’s paintings ( 1961-1973) April 1 to May 22,2010 – Now that may be worth a trip to the lovely city of San Francisco!

Posing in front of Bride’s Door, I’m wearing a Gucci dark bottle green paper thin leather bomber jacket, tartan cotton shirt with contrast collar and and french cuffs by Turnbull and Asser, black pearl cuff links by Seaman Schepps, black skinny jeans by Diesel, black patent and silver leather belt with grommets by Gucci, silver leather sneakers (not shown) by Dior, fragrance is Creed Vintage Tabarome, red leather gloves are Sermoneta, necklace with tartan pen knife is by Cartography.
