405 Sunset

While we were in Boston this past week­end, we stopped by our friend Lind­sey Warren’s stu­dio at BU, where she is just com­plet­ing her MFA in paint­ing. She just sold a bunch of work at the grad­u­ate stu­dent show a few weeks back, and still has some amaz­ing stuff left. We also got to see some works in progress – includ­ing some inter­est­ing print­mak­ing.

But, the best thing about the vis­it was that we pur­chased an amaz­ing paint­ing, 405 Sun­set:

405 Sunset

This paint­ing was fea­tured in the Boston Globe Mag­a­zine last sum­mer:

Lind­sey War­ren uses lurid col­ors and a sur­pris­ing range of tex­tures to evoke a world shim­mer­ing on the edge of dis­so­lu­tion, from the woodsy, dap­pled ‘Pow­er Out­age’ to the crisp, sun-stroked ‘405 Sun­set.’

So we’re excit­ed to get this piece to Brook­lyn, but that will take some time since it mea­sures 4′x 5′– we’ll have to get it crat­ed and shipped.

Take a look at her work, and con­tact her if you’re inter­est­ed in stop­ping by her stu­dio – she’ll be there until mid-June.

This week, the nytimes.com Design group says farewell to two real­ly tal­ent­ed col­leagues – Sean Vil­lafran­ca and Louise Ma. Sean is leav­ing to become Design Direc­tor at time.com, and Louise is going to free­lance, full-time.

I’m still new around these parts, but Sean and Louise made me feel at home. We’re going to miss you guys! (But, we are hir­ing…)
