In this previous post from my recent NYC art tour, I showed a series of photographs I took at ABC Carpet & Home. More than a place to shop, this is a place of endless visual inspiration. Check out their website to get a small taste of the experience. Their larger displays and smaller vignettes are constantly changing and sometimes they seem to manage the impossible by moving entire departments seemingly overnight. Several people commented and emailed about this particular picture from the post:
I wish I knew more about it. It was a large piece that I was unable to capture fully in a photograph because of the way it was displayed. The background was collaged with ephemera, sheet music, an old flower print, a vintage postcard, and real pressed flowers. It was overlayed with what-I-can-only-describe-as golden hued cracked glass. It was quite beautiful. And luckily I have a few other shots of details of the piece.
