Seraphin gallery is proud to announce Phillip Adams’ new Mural inside Rag & Bone’s Walnut Street store. The mural is a part of Adams’ series of mountain landscapes called Love at the Matterhorn. The series uses a mix of imagery both real and imagined. Placing colorful, and often absurd, elements within landscapes they wouldn’t normally inhabit is a constant in the series.
Adams’ Rag & Bone mural continues this concept by placing a spinning amusement park ride in a mountain top scene. The fully realized drawing showcases Adams’ attention to fine detail which rewards close observation. The closer you get to the work the more you are swallowed by a feeling of cold wind rushing against your face. Then the warm colors contrast with the sparse surroundings allowing the eye comfort within the icy white slopes.
Rag and bone was founded 2002 in New York. The brand is known for combining a British heritage with an understated downtown sensibility. Rag & bone continually redefines urban style with an Importance on craftsmanship and a stark attention to detail.
