Styling the editorial product shoot for my 2017 spring catalog was partly inspired by the tonal still life paintings of Giorgio Morandi - an artist that had a big influence on me as a graduate student and the current paintings of Michael Borremans.
My studio is a menagerie of enigmatic objects from when I was a painter, plaster casts from an art installation in the 80’s, hand bound books from one of my previous careers and pieces of nature. My creative environment is one large still life. Together these objects and materials were used to create a series of jewelry vignettes for the catalog. It combines my past with my present and illustrates another aspect of my creative point of view.
