“Tarquinia Chair” by Roberto Matta

“The function of art is to unveil the enormous economic, cultural and emotional forces that materially interact in our lives and that constitute the real space in which we live.”

Roberto Matta was a celebrated painter and an equally talented furniture designer. His furniture design was strongly interconnected with his art, each creation was the result of a vision, no matter how it was labeled.

“Sleeping Blonde”, oil on canvas, by Nick Alm.

I visited Nick in his studio at Lidingö outside Stockholm. It was absolutely fantastic, his work is more than captivating, it is just mesmerizing. I bought a lithograph, “Café Scene”, which I just want to be a part of, in the middle of the Parisian vibe, drink coffee, champagne or both. Another fav work by him is “Champagne breakfast”.
