IMMERSION: Becoming You at KATESHIN Gallery + Waterfall Mansion

An artist must possess Nature. He must identify himself with her rhythm, by efforts that will prepare the master, which will later enable him to express himself in his own language. – Henri Matisse

KATESHIN Gallery and Waterfall Mansion present Immersion, an invitation to the path of becoming you from January 28 to April 28, 2015.

The exhibition was created to be a space where one disconnects from multi-tasking and distractions of daily life to immerse in an environment that allows room to think and feel. Participating artists were asked to explore the theme of “origins” by using Nature as the catalyst and to create a “natural imprint” on all viewers.

JOHNHOUSHMAND was invited to provide moments in the exhibition for guests to perch or be seated while on their journey. It is our second union with KATESHIN Gallery and Waterfall Mansion of which we are most thankful to embrace.

If you would like to visit, through April 28th, Saturdays have been dedicated to tours. Kate Shin will personally be leading exclusive tours at 1 pm and 4 pm. Reservations can be made through JOHNHOUSHMAND and must be scheduled by 5 pm the Wednesday prior to desired viewing. Please contact us at info@johnhoushmand.com or 212-965-1238.

SACRED SPACES

JOHNHOUSHMAND PROJECTS is delighted to open its door to a dear artist, friend, and family member, Roshan Houshmand.

Roshan lives and creates her art in Andes, New York, in the Catskill Mountains and has been an artist there and abroad for more than three decades.

Her “Sacred Spaces”, a collection of works invoking the east as a metaphor of the west and vice versa, will accompany you through a journey of inspiring relationships, symbols, patterns and chance.

Incorporating Asian designs, floral patterns and mirrors, elements of the east are integrated in a western context. Traditional decorative and symbolic motifs with the subtlest of mutations are transformed dramatically to assume familiar shapes; familiar only because the images speak with the appropriate elan for the western context of experience. The mood evoked is a perfect and harmonious mixture of the inexplicable mystery of Persian gardens and the transcendent spirituality of the western abstraction.

The exhibition includes works on paper, and oil and mixed media paintings on canvas.

Please come to welcome Roshan in our showroom on Thursday, May 15th 2014 from 6 pm to 8 pm.

Good. Better. Best. Never let it rest.

TO LEARN MORE, PLEASE VISIT ROSHANHOUSHMAND.COM

Open Studio: May 15th to June 17th (10am – 6pm)

(For Friday visits, call 203.965.1238)

ARCHITECTURAL PANELING SYSTEM

Spanning 4 floors of stairs and conference rooms, our stack wall has never been so monumental. Built from cuts of live edge Spalted Maple slabs, JOHNHOUSHMAND developed this stack wall application to find a way to take the dynamic outer edge of the tree and turn it into an Architectural System.

Appreciating not only the aesthetic value of this design, but also the sustainable value, HAVAS WORLDWIDE with TPG ARCHITECTURE chose this methodology to define the visual signature of their new NYC headquarters.  Embedded in the stack are Blackened Steel boxes that allow HAVAS to change display features dependent upon visiting clients or current campaigns. This is one example of how remarkable yet flexible this paneling is, and defines it as a distinctive option in not only commercial, but also hospitality and residential sites of any scale.

LOVE’S LABOR

JOHNHOUSHMAND PROJECTS in collaboration with Studio e Partners is proud to present recent works by STEVE BURNETT.
Steve is a friend, artist, fellow farmer, and overall amazing soul whose multi-faceted self translates boisterously on the page in his paintings. Off the page, he radiates these selves outward with no bounds.
When wearing his artist’s hat, Steve creates watercolors which are each a light point and labor of love. I would hope anyone with optimism, affection, mirth and wit will come visit with these dreamy visions. Maybe even adopt one and take it home to further inspire. They will not disappoint.
I hope you can join me at the showroom to fete Steve at the Artist’s Reception on Friday, February 7th, or at the Open Studio on Saturday, February 8th (RSVP required, please see below). I look forward to seeing you there and sharing the ethereal world of Steve’s conjuring.

CHALK IT UP!


“Consciousness over physics,” describes how John views the challenge of combining diverse materials in unexpected ways. Fusing two elements, whose inherent properties appear completely contrary, into a beautiful and fully functional piece of art is why many seek JOHNHOUSHMAND creations.

Havas Worldwide, one of the leading global advertising and communications companies, commissioned us to create a communal table for their break room that would facilitate the ever-changing creative process. Monumental in scale at 24’ long, they asked if we could incorporate a “chalk board” feature with our signature live-edge wood aesthetic. Additionally, the wood used had to meet their deep commitment to sustainability.

Using a tree that was downed in a nor’easter, we began. Turning two live-edges of high character black walnut in towards the center of the table, and creating mating live-edges in Italian slate, Table No. 0268 comes alive with touch, kiss, and flow. Elevated on blackened steel legs with a stiletto heel curve, this communal table invites the firm’s creative talent to gather for sustenance as well as stimulation. Coffee in one hand, chalk in the other, No. 0268 invites all to gather and brainstorm.

Chalk it up to Houshmand to design and create a venue to bring creative ideas to the planet.

Check out this great time lapse of No. 0268 being installed! Created by the amazing team at TPG Architecture!

DALE COHEN DESIGNSTUDIO AND JOHNHOUSHMAND: MONUMENTAL LANTERN AT THE HAMPTON DESIGNER SHOWHOUSE

This summer we have had the opportunity to work with some wonderful designers who have featured the work of JOHNHOUSHMAND in their show house spaces. Working with Dale B. Cohen for dale cohen designstudio’s space at the Hamptons Designer Showhouse was an exciting creative endeavor. What emerged from this collaboration was groundbreaking and innovative!

Dale’s initial concept for her room on the Terrace Level of the Hamptons Designer Showhouse was to create a beautiful space for a collection of art.  Taking this creative approach allowed Dale to work without the constriction by a specific program, like a bedroom or bathroom, affording her the opportunity to make something out of the box.  During the preliminary discussion between John and Dale, John shared his enthusiasm about expanding into the world of lighting.  Dale was looking to create a large and sculptural object to animate her room.  Sitting down together, the collaboration between the two designers was an easy exchange of ideas arriving at the Monumental Lantern, No. 0277.

John looks for his work to bring about an extraordinary way of viewing the physical world. The materials used to design and create are chosen with the utmost care and due diligence in order to achieve a physical creation that evokes a visceral and soul touching experience.

With this project, it was the weaving process that allowed the design intent to come to full fruition. The materials themselves had limits and these constraints defined the work and the ultimate shape of the lantern that was achievable. Woven, razor thin micro slabs of wood, converging with the iridescent cast of frosted acrylic, all held together by an ethereal glow. The Monumental Lantern emerged as a beautiful, elegant form.  And while massive in its actual dimensions, the lantern achieves an air of lightness and floating, especially when lit.

This melding of geometric rigidity and natural looseness is only the preliminary step towards future lighting possibilities at JOHNHOUSHMAND. We are positive that Dale’s room in the ShowHouse will give an extra “glow” to the summer.

The 2013 Hampton Designer Showhouse is located at:
990 Brick Kiln Road, Bridgehampton, New York

LongHouse Reserve: White Night Summer Benefit

Jack Lenor Larsen and John Houshmand have a shared history of mutual respect, deep admiration and collaboration.  We are honored by the request to have our No. 0222 Cast Aluminum Director’s Chair – clad in a signature Larsen textile – be a featured item at the upcoming auction benefiting Jack’s foundation at LongHouse Reserve.

When founding LongHouse, Jack’s mission was to create a place that exemplifies living amongst art in all its forms.  His collections of ethnographic and handcrafts, gardens, sculpture and programs invite the public to embrace a life as textured and signature as his textiles. Layers of beauty mature and evolve from season to season at LongHouse, never failing to inspire anyone who crosses its bound. This philosophy is deeply inspirational to John and all of us at JOHNHOUSHMAND and motivates our love for nature, natural forms and combined materials.

This Saturday, July 20th marks this year’s benefit auction evening and LongHouse will be honoring architect Richard Meier, artist Ai Weiwei, and in memoriam of Lisa de Kooning. Bids for pieces in the auction can be placed online in advance of the auction at: http://paddle8.com/auctions/longhouse.
