We have some really amazing partnerships in the works for this year and wanted to share a sneak peek with you.
MOOD | Design + Build by Candy Scott featuring Robert Porazinski on Exhibit at Studio41
225 West Hubbard Street Chicago, IL 60654
Robert Porazinski: My work is inspired by natural and manufactured forms – the juxtaposition of gestural, painterly strokes and bold, defined compositions. The borders of the painting are the confines in which these forces are constantly being negotiated. The underlying painting is an accumulation of marks made from squeegees, trowels, sponges and brushes and in some cases, written text – all contributing to a visually rich surface. Shapes made from cut paper create the silhouettes that serve as a stencil for the composition. These forms give purpose and context to the underlying chaos. The fluctuation between abstraction and representation create ambiguities that invite a dialogue for interpretation. These characteristics are inherent in the work of early and mid 20th century artists for whom I have an affinity for and am continually referencing in my paintings.

His work is best known for its’ playful abstraction and his exploration of color and form.
Michael Del Piero founded Michael Del Piero Good Design in 2007 based on three simple principals: Strive for balance. Create interiors as current as they are enduring, as sophisticated as they are approachable, and as unusual as they are beautiful. And take care of clients as if they are royalty, serving their needs and lifestyles above all else. A curious soul and a world traveler, Del Piero is known for her accomplished eye and uncommon knack for a serene and simple mix that bridges generations of style. Her distinct aesthetic fuses rough with luxurious and ancient with modern. Her fresh approach to “the mix” has garnered accolades from a worldwide and most discerning clientele.
