THE ART: Liquid Dreams, 2012 by Jack Hardwicke
"I was instantly drawn to the rich, bright tones in this work. It reminds me of rock candy or gemstones. I’d place a piece like this in an interior with a deep, moody palette, where it would pop against the darker tones of the room. The color palette I’ve chosen pulls out some of the deeper tones of the work, so that the interior would relate to the piece but not compete with its bright jewel tones." -Lauren Stanley Hummel, designer based in Brooklyn, NY
