. . . discovered an artist
in the pages of the January/February Metropolitan Home magzine. This home is a complete redo of a place in Seattle. The above scan of a page of the article shows the interesting contrast between two very contemporary abstract paintings and the extremely ornate gilt mirror. Of course, the paintings caught my eye. And this is a magazine that names of the artists. The green (not red, see yesterday's post) painting on the left is by Angelina Nasso and the painting on the right is by T. L. Lange. I like both, but the Lange really appealed to me.
So when I saw this painting a few pages later, I was happy to find out that T. L. Lange had painted it, too. The caption for this photo reads in part "In the living room, a. T. L. Lange painting echoes the colors in the African mask. . ." Loved the colors, and it's just wacky enough to be intriguing.
This home is filled with serious contemporary art. . . serious in quantity, anyway. It's a very cool space. I wanted to see more of T. L. Lange's work, so I googled him and sure enough, here's the definitive site, a gallery that shows a bunch of it, as well as more work by other interesting artists.
