JAVIERA DA FONSECA, "Lautner Acapulco", 2017, Acrylic on canvas, 60 x 45 cm
Javiera da Fonseca lives and works in Tulum. Her work is influenced by modernist architecture and exotic landscapes. This painting was inspired by a house designed by John Lautner in Acapulco. American architect Lautner combined engineering with human design and a dramatic style of the space age. It is his ability to blur the line between home and habitat that make his designs so unique.

"El arte es algo intrínseco al ser humano. Es el medio que nos conecta con el más allá, con lo espiritual. Obedece a esa necesidad de expresión y canalización de emociones que tiene el artista y a la capacidad que tiene el espectador de interiorizar sus propios sentimientos al enfrentarse a una obra" dice @javiera_dafonseca
Impromptu weekend excursion to John Lautner’s Pearlman Cabin in Idyllwild, CA built in 1957. Tree trunk columns are great! And “open to the public” according to my guidebook, Midcentury Modern Architecture Travel Guide. #johnlautner#pearlmancabin (32 degrees not 72 degrees!) [Not part of the dissertation but maybe it should be. Jon Yoder vs. John Lautner #jonvsjohn ]
• THE SHEATS GOLDSTEIN RESIDENCE, LOS ANGELES • JOHN LAUTNER 1963 • ART & ARCHITECTURE • “James Goldstein purchased the residence in Beverly Crest neighborhood of Los Angeles in 1972 in a state of disrepair. He commissioned John Lautner (the original architect who built the home in 1963) to remaster and perfect the house. The Sheats Goldstein Residence is one of the best examples of Lautner’s work; he designed not only the house, but the interiors, windows, lighting, rugs, furniture and operable features”. (Wiki)I shot a campaign for @dorothyperkins here in the early 2000’s and met the icon @jamesfgoldstein before iPhones documented everything. Wish I had those photos.
