Latest Love: Alexander Gorlizki

Lovin the works on paper by New York-based artist Alexander Gorlizki, often no bigger than a sheet of notebook paper, and each stunningly intricate. Each piece is delicately rendered using single-hair brushes and hand-ground pigments then highlighted with gold leaf. Drawing upon the traditions of Indian-miniature-style watercolors and manuscript illumination, Gorlizki’s surreal and whimsical works depict miniature scenes upon intricate patterns inspired by sources varying from Central Asian textiles to Victorian wallpaper.

Raoul Dufy (French, 1877-1953)
La promenade au bois, 1919
Gouache on paper

Though I live in a rental, and can’t go wild decorating quite yet, I can’t wait to join in the return of wallpaper. There are so many beautiful options out there nowadays, for any room—a moonlit nursery, graphic closet, a blooming entry, or perhaps a little faux-architectural detail or a stunning accent wall. Can you imagine a Dufy-papered room??
