One art movement I love a great deal is minimalism. It took until my last
year as an undergraduate to even begin to appreciate this kind of art, but
by the time I started writing about art, I was continually singing its praises.

Now a great deal of art created today uses minimalism either as a further conversation with the ideas of quiet spaces, or deal with minimalism as a subversive agent. I have no doubt that William Cannings appreciates the minimalist aesthetics; however, he also doesn’t seek to take it too seriously.

Mid-Century Modern Living at its Best
With the sleek lines and open layout synonymous with mid-century architecture,this 4,679-square-foot treasure has been meticulously renovated from its hand detailed Cypress horizontal siding accents, commercial-framed doors, Grohe fixtures, and various stone floors to its beamed vaulted ceilings. To the entry’s left is the elevated formal living room, highlighted by a fireplace set in a brick wall and skylight. Just beyond the living room is the dining room,with a sliding glass door opening to a private courtyard that could easily be used as a dog run.Since the home is ideal for entertaining, the Varenna kitchen is a show stopperwith two Sub-Zero refrigerators, Asko dishwasher, icemaker and Kuppersbusch appliances (induction cook top, oven, convection oven and coffee system).
Highlighting the black-and-white culinary center is a stone wall with the see- through fireplace that also services the adjoining family room. And, don’t worry about storing the wood. There’s a built-in for it in the wall.
Adjacent to the family room and behind a set of pocket doors is a study befitting for such a smart lifestyle. It features custom millwork shelves and cabinets and a dark Emperador marble floor and full bath.

As with the Ruché seating, the Ruché bed is lifted from the ground by a simple, fine structure which supports a comfortable sleep platform. The headboard and frame are dressed with a distinctive quilting, a kind of boutis stitch of padding made using a cross-hatching of interrupted seams. Alternately flattened by the stitches then set free, the fabric ‘curls’ in places, giving rise both to its unique appearance and to its name, Ruché (a gathered or pleated fabric which serves as decoration on a piece of clothing).

Nafir is imagination pure and simple. An interesting feature of Nafir is that from a plan-view the geometry is coincident to one another, so they naturally fit together allowing for a infinite number of compositions when grouped. click for details>>
When historians look back at the early twenty-first century, they will likely describe our time as the era of the Information Revolution. And because so much data is being collected and processed, it was bound to catch the attention of artists. Gary Farrelly’s upcoming show “Terminal Compositions,” looks to be information heavy with images of terminals, statistics, cryptography, and maps; but not sterile or slick in design.

Farrelly uses collage; an overworked, worn out look that manages to slow the viewer down. And after his visit as a resident with the University of Texas in 2010, I am glad to see him back, and showing with RO2 Galley.
