Seraphin Gallery is exhibiting multiple artists in the model unit at 500 Walnut luxury residencies. This partnership with the talented and highly professional team at 500 Walnut will now allow our clients to view selected works in a contemporary and polished interior setting. Some of the artists featured in this new luxury condominium construction are Jeff Cylkowski, Madeline Peckenpaugh, Joe Mooney, Paul Fabozzi, and Natalie Alper.
The residencies at 500 Walnut combine design elements with visual fine art compositions. The layout of the unit, accented by our artists' works allows the viewer's eye to move uninterrupted throughout the space. Madeline Peckenpaugh's painting, For a Trail (46" x 66" featured center), hangs directly on the travertine fireplace-- extending the dining area while also complimenting the organic nature of the stone with a painterly earthy palette. The 1972 Louise Nevelson lead intaglio collage print (29" x 24" featured right) echoes not only the angled furnishings and dark neutral tones in the room, but also mimics the stacked urban view of Old City that can be seen through the full-length windows.
Jeff Cylkowski's painting, Arbiter of Competing Perceptions (48" x 48" featured below) is displayed in the office study space of the model unit. The bright and fluid pop style that Cylkowski paints in is graphic and activates the space, playing off of the minimalist furnishings in the room. His bright colors, free-form brush strokes, crisp patterned shapes, and shining metallics accent the material-focused atmosphere. Cylkowski's painting was the perfect fit to add a playful sense of creativity to a business-oriented workspace.
Natalie Alper's August #2 (22" x 15") is placed in the clean open kitchen of the unit between the two large windows that show the beautiful view from 500 Walnut. The dark palette and earthly neutral shades in the work on paper are reflected in the dual-toned cabinetry and marble surfaces, creating a visual unity. The mark-making in Alper's piece is quick, airy, and gestural which plays off of the openness of the windows and the lightness of the architecture. Like Cylkowski's piece, August #2 adds looseness and whimsy to a highly polished setting.
