Creating a home of your own certainly has its perks, the most fulfilling of which is having a space that is a unique expression of the way you live and the things you love. For Matthew and Lindsay Blank, this iridescent piece of art by Seth Price falls under the “things they love” category. The bold color helps to establish their Greenwich Village apartment’s palette, with the bright blue fortifying the earthy textures in the living room. Interior designer Gideon Mendelson curated the Paul McCobb chairs and Robsjohn-Gibbings end tables; while the Herman Miller lounge is from the homeowners’ own collection.
Seth Price's multi-disciplinary art practice has gained an international following. In conceptual works that include video, sculpture, sound, and written texts, Price displays appropriation, recirculation and packaging to consider issues of cultural production, the distribution of information, and the role of ideology. Price lives and works in New York.
