rosemary warner photograph


i mentioned rosemary warner earlier and this is the photo i was refrencing. i met rosemary in 2003, about 6 months after i moved to nyc. she finally (hee) invited me over to her studio in dumbo (brooklyn, nyc) after a few months. she lives in that amazing loft space we all dream of, when our New York dream comes to life (fat chance anyone could get that now). well, she had lived there for over 20 years in this old shoe factory and the first several years she didn't even have heat. she has built a kitchen, bathroom, interior walls have gone up and she did it all alone. she lived on the 5th floor of a walk-up building and her space was 5000+ sq. feet....i about fell over dead when i walked in for the first time. she has the most amazing work live space and i was surrounded by this whole collection called jump.....i gravitated towards this piece and had to figure out a way to get it. it took over a year of payments until she made it home and believe you me, she is one of those girls you always have to keep close to home. i better stop as i am sounding so materialistic.

this photograph is just exactly what i would want to own. it speaks to me. i can't tell you how inspiring it is.

rosemary, i've never met you, but i love you.
