988 Madison Avenue: Meet the Artists

September 14, 2016

One of the things we love most about our Madison Avenue store is being able to showcase the work of a few artists we love from the Voltz Clarke Gallery. We wanted to create a space that felt like you could live in it and having art on the walls completes that feeling – plus you can shop the works right from the store! Meet the artist we are featuring below and stop by when you’re in the neighborhood.

HOLLAND CUNNINGHAM

Where do you find inspiration for your work?

I’ve always been interested in the language of photography and art history. With my more figurative work, I look to photographs. I love the ones that are snapshots, that aren’t a perfect image. With my abstract work, I look to renaissance paintings.

What is it like seeing your work in a store setting?

The art world is so much about a white box, about a gallery and it’s so much more interesting when its shaken up.

Your personal style:

Carefully curated.


Leopard or Camo?

Camo. Absolutely camo.
- Holland Cunningham

Natasha Law


Where do you find inspiration for your work?

My family and the occasional blue chip exhibition I can slip out of the studio for at the Tate Modern.

Your favorite work hanging in the Veronica Beard store?

I love all of the pieces by the artists on the Voltz Clarke roster but think the "I Want it All" neon [sign by Lisa Schulte] captures the right impulse in everyone's inner being.

Your personal style:

Sneakers, sketchbook, and a passport.

Leopard or Camo?

Camo, for sure.
- Natasha Law

Mary Nelson Sinclair


Where do you find inspiration for your work?

Patterns & color in nature and textiles, India, Morocco, the process of making/creating, history and the passing of time.

What is it like seeing your work in a store setting?

It's a new environment for my work as its usually on a white wall in a gallery and then a collectors home so seeing it in a public setting outside of the art world gives it a new life. I like knowing that new eyes see it everyday.

Your personal style:

Relaxed, polished, eclectic, layered and collected.

Leopard or camo?

Leopard.
- Mary Nelson Sinclair

CHRISTINA BURCH



Where do you find inspiration for your work?

My inspiration comes from light, color, beauty, the divine, figurative art from around the world, textiles, yoga, meditation and acupuncture

Your favorite work hanging in the Veronica Beard store?

Natasha Law. I love her sleek feminine contours and bold colors.


Your personal style:

Mysterious, colorful, poetic wonderment.

Leopard or Camo?

Leopard.

- Christina Burch

SARA GENN

Where do you find inspiration for your work?

Textiles, nature, shadows, the invisible. Colour and its relationships, defiant softness, rhythm, vibration — and the technicals of color field work — soaking, flats, raking light over a suede-y surface. Never underestimate the power of an obsession.

What is it like seeing your work in a store setting?

The paintings feel a part of a larger narrative — the story of an artist or muse, a creative thrust, the life of an individual expressed in a collection of things. To see the work in an environment that’s so fluid and inspired emboldens more ideas.

Your Personal Style:

Easy beloved uniform.

Leopard or Camo?

The softer one.
- Sara Genn
