lucia dill

So, last week I popped by the gorgeous California College of the Arts campus in San Francisco. I took a little walk through the students’ studios, and there was so much good work hanging everywhere… but this studio stopped me in my tracks:

Muted color palettes… simple compositions … and so many chairs!!! I was in heaven. After a little bit of sleuth work it was determined that this was the studio of soon-to-graduate BFA student Lucia Dill. I wish she had been in her studio as I was snooping touring around campus, but alas, she must have been out looking for more chairs. Such lovely, “beautifully boring” work. I don’t know if it’s just me,┬ábut these chairs seem almost human. Some look lonely, others look like they are newly in love, and a few of them might not be speaking to each other:

    I love that you feature student artists on this blog – these are some lovely pieces by Lucia.

    well when student work looks like this, it’s easy to feature it! ;)

    I see these chairs as people. Some lonely and isolated, some gathering in groups and some having a weird threesome. I particularly like the two with their backs to each other…What a beautiful discovery.

    I just love the volume of chairs. A fabulous example of how *sometimes* quantity can make quality. So beautiful!
