The Painters Series
Weitzner's Fall 2018 collection, The Painters Series, channels modern and contemporary art—from watercolors to oils, murals to miniatures—to inform its fabric and wallcovering patterns. Throughout the collection are nods to the vibrant colors and expressive abstractions of Modern art, with references to such 20th-century painters as Paul Klee and Helen Frankenthaler. For three designs, the Weitzner studio partnered with Smilow+Mathiesen, the artistic team of Pamela Smilow and her late husband, Gert Mathiesen, who painted individually and collaboratively on large-scale, site-specific works of art in a variety of media.
Here, we employ a fresh and diverse use of techniques, textures, and hues.
