artMRKT kicks off tonight with its gala opening at the Concourse. We’re celebrating with the fourth post in our series, Designers Curate artMRKT. Today, the dapper Matthew Leverone, principal of Matthew Leverone Design, shares the three pieces that caught his refined eye.
See you at the fair!

“As Francis Bacon said, ‘The job of an artist is always to deepen the mystery.’ These three pieces affect me in that way. It’s not logic, its love.”
1) The use of color is brilliant. The vibration and energy is so intense its hypnotizing!

2) It’s stunning how De Staebler captures the gesture of flight.

3) An incredible pool of blues. The strong forms play wonderfully against each other.
