Spotted at artist Izhar Patkin’s instagram: the tent he has on his New York roof deck with an interior painted by Scooter LaForge.
It seems like such an obviously good idea —paint is made for canvas— yet we’ve never seen it done before.
We can imagine hiding out in its dreamy magic…
A fragment of a Mary Oliver poem comes to mind:
I heard the small kingdoms breathing
around me, the insects, and the birds
who do their work in the darkness. All night
I rose and fell, as if in water, grappling
with a luminous doom. By morning
I had vanished at least a dozen times
into something better.
