NEW YORK, NY – Our friend Phillip Low makes beautiful hand milled acrylic sculptural pieces. He was kind enough to let us photograph him and his work in progress during a studio visit. Adopting the aesthetic of prisms and prismatic color separation, his pieces shape light in a way that is absolutely magical.
BROOKLYN, NY – We humans are one-of-a-kind, and conceptual artist Allan McCollum’s ongoing shapes project celebrates just that. The project, which began in 2005, has the intent of creating a unique shape for every person on the planet when the population peaks at around 9.5 billion. Architectural Digest sent us on a studio visit with McCollum not long ago in anticipation of his latest solo exhibition, The Shapes Project: Perfect Couples, that is happening now at the Petzel Gallery in New York City (through October 4). For this exhibit, the shapes are rendered in color for the first time (read Group Dynamic in AD).
BROOKLYN, NY – Here are some outtakes from a shoot with artist Teresita Fernández at her studio. The story, called “The Alchemist,” appears in the October 2013 issue of Architectural Digest.
