The story of artist Lily Stockman is equally as beguiling and impressive as the bold magnitude of her artwork. Lily is an acclaimed painter living and working in Los Angeles and Joshua Tree, California.

Lily’s art is magnetic – the energising palette is the initial draw but the large tactile compositions and tribal patterns are what continue to engage – resulting in pieces that are raw, alive, earthy, meditative and infinitely covetable. Geometric shapes and chromatic harmonies work together to deliver exuberance with reverence, the abstract forms almost floating off their dyed linen canvas.

Lily’s unique and impressive education and travels, also inspire: she graduated from Harvard University in 2006 where she studied painting and botany. After completing an apprenticeship in Buddhit thangka painting at the Union of Mongolian Artists in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, she was awarded a National Geographic Expeditions Council youth grant to ride across the eastern steppe on horseback.
In 2008, Stockman moved to Joshua Tree where she lived and worked before travelling to Jaipur, Rajashthan to study pigment and Mughal miniature painting with Ajay Sharma. Stockman received her MFA in studio art from New York University in 2013.

The apartment of Brooklyn based photographer Pia Ulin is moody and layered, a skilful manipulation by Brooklyn based architectural studio Bangia Agostinho. A meandering series of intimate spaces; walls are pulled from the infinite expanse of ceiling, monochromatically toned down shade-by-shade to white, creating a play on a sense of enclosure and vastness. Warmed at the heart is a core of birch ply which wraps to form a built-in daybed and a contemplative enclosure to the study; delicately delineating a sense of ‘room’ without creating formal boundaries.

Characteristic of the loft the architects’ aspiration to celebrate the volume of space, here, is explored by a play on contrasts. Bleached timber floors are beautifully opposed by the rich deep charcoal exposed ceiling, and between the two planes; the midpoint, is found shades of grey in walls in cabinetry and warm mid toned timber furnishings. Perhaps this contrast is felt most in the layered yet lofty living room overlooked by the Noguchi Akari pendant, which floats as an ethereal delicacy in the dark abyss of the ceiling volume.
