I normally don't repost something
straight from the presses,
but I thought the
was worth it.
Mr. Owens' apartment he shares with his partner
is a pretty seamless blend of clichés.
Dark wood, gold leaf, African themes, taxidermy,
skulls, crystals, distressed and "raw" surfaces,
concrete, industrial lighting, etc, etc, etc.
he pulls it off rather well,
very well in fact.
All of the elements I mentioned above are great,
but they are WAY overused,
so overused that
I have a hard time with them individually
a lot of the time,
not to mention all together in one place.
Normally my head would explode,
but there is a real artistry and subtleness to his
powerful imagery created with the combination his
furniture, objects, sculpture, materals and surface treatments.
I'm a fan....
All the amazing photos by
