Self Portrait as Superman | A digital complement to LLYN FOULKES
“Flanders, with its Bernini-like mound of flowing white plastic curling into lacelike ripples, features a photograph he had taken of Death Valley pressed into the mound; a separate painting below, replicating the photo, illustrates Foulkes’s early interest in photographic representation.” -excerpt from the LLYN FOULKES catalogue.

Every week for the run of the exhibition we’ll focus on another of Jones’ projects. We begin our tour of the BRODY HOUSE a bit early…
Haines’s gouache rendering of a seating area in the Brody House.
The architect, Jones, and decorator, William Haines, worked together on seven residential and commercial projects, but the most significant fruits of their collaboration were two landmark California houses now well established in the firmament of twentieth-century domestic design. The first of these was the residence of real estate developer Sidney Brody and his wife, arts patron Frances Lasker Brody, located in the upscale Holmby Hills neighborhood near UCLA.
