My friend Harrison Morgan recently arranged for a gathering with the legendary Hunt Slonem at the artist’s home, studio, gallery, garden, and yes, aviary. The space is 15,000 square feet of pure hypnagogia—and very much the extension of Slonem’s art as well as the perfect launching point for the artist’s further creative investigations.

It seems this is exactly the psychophysical space needed to incorporate and so gloriously resolve the great cacophony of exotic birds, bugs, rabbits, butterflies, monkeys, voodoo saints, and even depictions of our beloved Abraham Lincoln that inhabit Slonem’s vision.

As you might imagine, I’m now quite excited about the possibilities Slonem’s work presents for the interiors I’m creating. Do have a look at The Worlds of Hunt Slonem when you’re in the mood for a wondrous adventure!

I’m sporting a red leather biker jacket by Gucci, blue plaid cotton shirt by Tom Ford, Paul Smith pale gray light weight wool pant, Gucci patent and silver leather belt, Yves Saint Laurent “Windsor” loafers in black leather and my fragrance is Creed Original Cologne.

    James!

    I woke up this morning thinking about a pink butterfly Slonem, that I almost bought last year. What a strange coincidence, as I had not yet read my daily WIJW. Am reading a great book by William Rieder,
    called “A Charmed Couple, the Art and Life of Matilda and Walter Gay” set in turn of the century Paris and so evocative. Thanks for sharing this great Hunt Slonem experience, lucky you!

    Dean,

    I hope that pink butterfly somehow comes your way.
    Slonem’s work is just magical and I can’t wait to grace the many fine interiors I have created with some of his brilliant works.

    Cheers

    JA
