Inspired By…Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs

Share this :   | | | | |

A few weeks ago I finally caught the Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs exhibit at MoMA and was immediately captured by Matisse’s simple shapes and bold colors. Each piece was distinctive but connected, with endless variations on a theme. I left brainstorming ways incorporate the elements that made the cut-outs so distinctive into a celebration for a modern couple who loves mid-century art and design and has a bit of a sense of humor. An all-white loft space would be the perfect blank canvas for these bold colors to pop.
