Introducing Deborah Bowness and Steve Butcher at Spring

Check out the current curated show of artists and designers out at Spring, an exhibition space and design shop in Dumbo. Bowness makes hand printed wall papers (and apparently won the "best in show" wall paper category at the recent ICFF) and Steve Butcher is making these great "paint by number" constructed line paintings.

Demolition wall paper

close up of Demolition (two rolls)

You can pin up three or four rolls of the paper (each unique, in this case) like below. Generally speaking, one roll costs about $240 (and they are super long, so work in high-ceilinged spaces)

The book shelves below were the winners at ICFF. Here they are installed at Spring.

Genuine Fake Book Shelves

I like this little guitar from a commission for the Polydor Records offices.

Lamps, from the Utility Wallpaper Series

And here are some of Steve Butcher's paintings...gotta love those stripes (colors all organized and numbered, a la paint by numbers.)

Toilers of the Sea (redux)

You can see all this work and more at the "inConstruction" show at at Spring
126a Front Street, DUMBO/Brooklyn. Inquiries? Please contact the nice folks at Spring directly via email.

Know any artists whose work would make a home a lovelier place? Send ideas to The Gallery. Thanks!
