'Eques' collection of LED light sculptures explore the mystery and wonder of nature. Inspired by the Sea Dragon, the design incorporates air inflated metal plumes. Offered in a bespoke arrangement of high polished mirror stainless steel, plated 24KT gold, and custom painted colors. The light sculptures appear to float and defy gravity, while creating abstract reflections within the environment.
Available exclusively at Todd Merrill Studio.
Air blown stainless steel plumes designed and sculpted by DLEUCI, specially made by Full Blown Metals Ltd.
'Romodern Artifacts' are finely crafted from hand blown glass, cast bronze, sand blasted metal, carved marble and mixed material assemblage. The unique and limited edition works appear to come from the Future, and are designed without any direct historical references. They are made with the intent to subtly bring a sense of unexplored nature into their environments. Working with an approach of ‘design alchemy’, both the interiors and surfaces are thoughtfully crafted to reveal the objects’ own materialities which convey a sense of mystery and wonder.
'Dream Hive' paintings start with opposing color narratives of cool and warm, dark and light; as well as reflective and non-reflective. Brush strokes impulsively transform into fluttering abstract silhouettes that appear to hover. Each work has a feathery appearance, suggesting an other-worldly formation; or, an unexplained atmospheric occurrence where space and light fold onto themselves.
With the 'Rococo Cloud’ paintings, geometric abstractions of clouds and ethereal forms found in nature like sea foam create a multidimensional appearance from mirrored paint. The solid backgrounds set the sculpted grounds forward, which shift and change values from different viewing planes.
Using painting as way to tether to the hidden world of science and wonder, each work serves as a reminder that all we see is not all we see.
Bespoke and custom installation art that evoke nature in an abstract sense, and bring both an energizing quality and sense of calm into a space.
Exploring Art and Fashion with construction inspired by Romantic and Modernist sculptures, these wearable works are created through the lens of ‘Romodernism’.
“Wearable Art is generally an antithetical statement. However, if a work is executed with the intent of both being worn and admired as an object, then measure can be taken that the article in question is a work of art…or, an 'objet d’art.’
FASHIONART is creating upon a foundation without fully laid out or pre-set patterns in advance of making the final piece. The process used is more intuitive like how a painter finds the next brush stroke, or how a sculptor instinctively removes or adds volume.
Working with an artist’s mindset allows for a dialogue of material and original idea to blossom into one of a kind pieces.”
