DECORED, is a group show curated by David Martinello that features west coast contemporary furniture of Stuart Brooks, boldly glazed modem ceramic vessels and tiles by Daniela Petosa, abstract impressionist paintings/sculpture as well as modern rustic furniture by David Martinello and artfully composed floral designs by Andrea Goertzen Strachan.
By changing the word décor into a verb, the title DECORED denotes the action by which the show is configured. In combining esoteric with functional elements, the presentation of craft is addressed in a gallery setting.
With DECORED the differences of things made for decoration as to what is made for dialog highlights what they have in common. It’s the materials used to create works of Art that is the foundation of creation and the main tool by which the makers make their expressions. When shown together the disparate mediums communicate beyond object d’art to a process accented by shared creativity.
