Black painting

Credenza and black painting

From Portland Monthly Magazine. A monochromatic painting resting on a teak credenza becomes a sort of contemplative feature wall. Why is this picture so compelling to me? It’s not as if it’s that different from the thousand other midcentury modern still lifes I’ve seen in the past few years, but sometimes one variation on a theme stands out from the others.

    Bizarrely, I have that exact same credenza in my living room… but it’s about twice the width. I guess they must have made a compact model!
