Proposals features art from around the world.
Mitsuko Brooks is a young and emerging designer from Los Angeles. His Japanese heritage influences his work and helped him earn honors at UCLA Fine Arts School. His work “Inside” was created from letters of love and encouragement sent by his Mother Matsuko while he prepared his final thesis for art school. We wanted our guests to feel loved upon entering our home and places this piece at the entry door.
Natalia is from Uruguay and is heavily influenced by the undeveloped natural beauty of the country. Her “Peaceful Moment” work felt aligned with the room furthest set back on the upper level. Her interpretation of sky, sand and water were aligned with the real views from this room.
“The Legend Lives On”
James Watts is an Australian artist who has been featured in many public works projects in Queensland. His ability to transform ordinary items into pieces of wonder has allowed him to earn numerous awards, like the eX de Medici Award in 2008.
We felt an ordinary moment was transformed while looking out the window at the Pacific Ocean, and James’ piece symbolizes that experience.
“Setting Sun Over Black Rock”
A Scottish painter and photographer whose abstract work captured perfectly the essence of the sunset behind Proposal Rock.
This Ukrainian artist became noticed in 2018 at the New York Expo. This work symbolizes his emergence from a small industrial town to attending art school in Lviv.
The energy of this transition and the journey of youth seemed to match this room. The largest scale piece of art in the home and the brightest.
Paul is a Canadian artist whose series “Desk Art” revealed DDR in 2015. His use of steel and acrylic created a slick environment for which he added his doodle art work over a period of one year before completing this work.
Vintage photos of Neskowin from the 1950’s that showcase Proposal Rock, and a nice aerial shot of the future development site for Communitees at Neskowin.
Also pictured is Hawk Creek, a local creek that stretches from the mountains to the Pacific Ocean and while its size changes with the tide, its location is always just outside our door.
A new polish artist, Mathilda emerged in 2018. After years in a abusive and submissive relationship she began her art in 2018 as a form of cleansing and rebirth. We felt that opposing the bath, this painting’s spirit of cleansing would be enjoyed.
