This week I am going to devote each blog post to a favorite artist. Lydia and I often act as collection curators for many of our clients and May seems to be shaping up as a big art buying month for many! Choosing art for our clients is one of the most exciting parts of my job and Elliott Puckette, among many others, provides a big source of inspiration for me.
Elliott Puckette creates her abstract paintings using gesso and washes of colored inks. She then scores elaborate flowing lines using a razor blade. These purposeful swathes cut through the calming color washes giving the otherwise serene work a sense of lyrical purpose and movement. I could look at her work for hours
This Brooklyn-based artist is half of an art world power couple, her husband is the British artist and brewery heir Hugo Guinness…more on his work later this week.
