Artist Crush: David Adickes
I don’t actually remember where I first saw David Adickes works I just remember jotting it down in one of many blog idea notebooks and noting that some of his works reminded me of the colors in Chiang Mai Dragon.
Take a peek and see if you agree with me:
Bright trees with bike:
Spring Trees, 4 chairs
Spring Trees, three bikes
I can’t pin point exactly what I love about them, but they simply make me happy. I love the vibrant colors and wish I could hop on into the painting and take a lovely bike ride.
Mr. Adickes originally studied math and physics so I’m super happy that he took a trip to France after college and studied with Fernand Leger. Upon his return to the states he began painting full time and many of works are housed in museums. Not only is he talented with a brush, but his artistic skills also include sculpturing.
Here are a couple more of my favorite pieces that would I would be happy to give a nice home to!
From his ladies of style series this has to be my favorite:
It looks like Emily makes another appearance in this work:
It’s hard to pick a favorite from his Wild Hair series, but this lady caught my eye right away.
Any other artists that I should keep on my radar? I always find artwork to be of the hardest things to pick out for a client. I really feel like it’s such a personal decision and that a piece should really speak to you. I always like to make selecting artwork a joint effort with clients.
How do you go about picking pieces for your home? What’s your favorite piece in your home?
