Artist Feature: Caryl Hull Leavitt - All Things Aesthetic

At Darby Road HOME we pride ourselves on always having interesting and unique art, and that is just what Caryl Hull’s art embodies. Currently in the store we are featuring her work “Citrus” which is sure to brighten and refresh your day!

CITRUS - 24x18 inches framed, acrylic on paper, vintage paper, $1800 as a pair

Here are a few words from the artist herself:

“Working from observation, memory and intuition, with a nod to Josef and Anni Albers, I bring shape, color, and texture together along with the familiar materials such as paint, tape, stamps and post-it notes, to create complex images that evoke the joy of every day—real or imagined.

I move shapes around to nd relationships between color, scale and size, shifting them as I please, sometimes with great intention, other times not—always responding to the materials at hand to reveal their intrinsic beauty.

In this way, images emerge.

“Citrus” incorporates elements of a 1965 musical score cover I found in my travels that inspired this series.”

Going Green with Hudson Designs

Going Green with Hudson Designs

Green is good for you! There is no doubt that nature brings a sense of restoration to our physical and mental well-being. Greenery in any form naturally transforms a space, provides soothing stress relief and acts as a natural mood booster. It brings a space to life.

Plant paintings or Moss Wall art brings the beauty of nature directly to a living space (or workspace). While some living walls require watering, maintenance and care, Hudson Design uses preserved moss and plant materials to create pieces that are long lasting and care free.
