At this year's San Francisco Decorator Showcase (running through May 28th) we are presenting a new collection of Soviet Russian Impressionist landscapes (1940s -1980s). The small scale, unique frames, and intimate atmosphere of the scenes lent themselves handsomely to various unique groupings. Above we hung a selection of pieces in a style known as a "Paris Hang". Complimenting the oils is a collection of Modernist sculptures by Dave Fox (1920-2011) . Both the paintings and sculptures can be viewed and purchased online in our New Arrivals Boutique.
The Modernist ceramic sculptures of Dave Fox were created during the final decade of his career (2000-2010) and represented a dramatic new direction for the Vienna-born artist. Here they are displayed on custom linen-wrapped plinths.
We continued the gallery design of the 3rd floor hallway with the groupings above; curating pieces based on their harmonious palettes and the forms of their frames.
Combing a variety of frames gives each arrangement a sculptural aesthetic that adds visual excitement to the hang. It's a very nice alternative to simply presenting everything in the same frame.
During the design process we gave a great deal of thought to how each grouping would look from every angle. Here a group of three Soviet Impressionist landscapes are seen through the bannister as you ascend.
The San Francisco Decorator Showcase is widely considered to be the West Coast’s premier design showhouse event, renowned for featuring the work of the region’s top interior and landscape designers.
