John Derian at Watson KennedyNovember 9, 2011
We have been offering the beautiful decoupaged works of John Derian at the shops and on the website for 11+ years, and I still get excited to open the boxes when a new shipment arrives. His use and choice of images is extraordinary. I thought I would take you on a little tour of some of his new designs, as well as things that are perennial favorites. Enjoy the show…
This last round had lots of color. I am particularly found of the ‘my dear’ plate.
We also just got a new, vintage display case that houses some of his work.
The plates mix in nicely with other objects. I think they work great in bookcases, set amongst books or objects.
John’s work often times has a touch of whimsy, and many times has a French influence.
The bird series is a personal favorite. These work great singly or in multiples.
We scatter them about the shops. This one is layered with vintage documents and then bundled together.
His pieces make incredibly special gifts.
Encourage good intentions. Words to live by.
The black shelves in the back of the expanded Home space have worked perfectly holding a variety of John’s work.
The series of hands creating shadows is so very sweet.
