“Tender Is The Night - F. Scott Fitzgerald” 48x60
“There are bits of Swiss Alps, empty train stations that speak to the loneliness following the Great War, a lone cyclist on a curving upward path, a “necklace” of sparkling houses strung together and visible at night from above, palm trees, edelweiss, head scarves, tasseled beach blankets, and patio umbrellas.
All of these images uphold, and are somehow only fully visible through, the complexity of characters. I tried to convey the clouds of anxiety, depression, desperation, mania, and peace that came and went for men and women of various experiences and temperaments. These moments were real, and they occurred right alongside scenes and emotions of striking beauty and pathos. All in a global culture still reeling from gigantic loss of life.
One of my favorite layers in this piece came when I was listening to the playlist I made to enhance my immersion in the culture of the book… I began to sketch different Art Deco shapes and lines, and then after a couple of hours of experimenting - I painted thin black lines over the existing painting in such a way that gave an additional experience of Jazz Age culture.”
Sage Culture is pleased to be carrying Plethora Magazine, a publication from Copenhagen that challenges the bounds of the conventional magazine format. Skillfully printed by the monks of a Hindu temple, it pays homage to the unique qualities of artisanal printing tradition, and it's composed of poster-size pages focused on arts and culture. .
Anima Mundi ventures into the deep jungle of biodiversity in search of a common World Soul - the fundamental interconnectivity between all living creatures, our shared ecologies and the collective unconscious that animates our natural coexistence.

A Central Park West duplex designed by @jenniferpostdesign
features large contemporary artworks that make a modern splash. #JulianOpie
is represented by a front and back portrait that consists of two ovoid lightboxes, a #SarahMorris
painting displays her trademark brightly colored geometric shapes, and a work by #JasonMartin
can be seen at the top of the stairs with instantly recognizable morpheus forms this time executed in black. These artists each achieved a relative level of commercial success on the international gallery and art fair circuit. Heralding some sort of 20th Century fin de siecle, the artworks are surely symptoms of the social milieus they inhabit. If nothing else, it must be the great Salon painting of our day. #ArtInTheHome #LivingWithArt
