BRASS PEDESTAL TABLE BY MASTERCRAFT
This table, made by Mastercraft in the 1970s, features their classic combination of brass bases topped with glass. These minimal pedestals feature a near mirror polish that accentuates their delicate curvatures. Styled enough to coordinate with more ornate interiors, yet reduced enough to play with Midcentury Modern classics, the Mastercraft Brass Pedestal Table is a solid middle ground that can bring together interiors of many types.
DREAMSCAPE II BY MICHAEL LOTENERO
Dreamscape II is summery, like warm twilight. Comprised of brushed, scraped, and poured paint, its surface has an entrancing transparency that is offset by seductively opaque moments. The picture's thick atmosphere parts right of center to reveal a creamy luminescence; meanwhile thick streaks of white disrupt its illusionist qualities. Pulsing with vibrant energy in every mark, Lotenero's Dreamscape II turns the compelling space of a dream into dynamic abstraction.
