Captured as New York Fashion Week was in full swing, myself completely taken by it, I found a cleansing moment of escapism within Carl Andre In his Time at Mnuchin Gallery. An expression of my current inner state, the ever present dualities, the excitement, I created tension between the opposition of minimal and maximal forms connected by the spirit of something evocative and free. A symbolic representation of this spirit is embodied in Jordan Askill’s new collection for Georg Jensen, the butterfly reimagined as sculptural pieces to wrap and adorn the human form. Askill revisited the seminal Danish brand’s archives and was particularly drawn to the Art Nouveau 70’s influence, representing Georg Jensen’s core history and his own fascination with elaborate natural themes, the butterfly became the essential motif of this collaboration. A lover of mixed metals, and embracing the energy of overt juxtapositions, I paired black rhodium plated sterling silver and 18 kt. yellow gold with copper and zinc floor sculptures of your dreams by Carl Andre. A theme of multiples also plays on through Donald Judd’s steel and plexiglass majestic stacks mimicked by the black satin bands in this killer creation by Josep Font of Delpozo. All leading up to the Delpozo spectacle that would follow, that glittering end to the fireworks show, bursting with heart and offbeat fantasia.
