A Chair Is Still A Chair

A Chair Is Still A Chair  is a work by Mark Gleberzon and is part of an ongoing series of chair-themed paintings presented at the Architectural Digest Home Show in New York this March.

Gleberzon explained that the first model he used for his chair series was a chair taken from his parents’ house about 20 years ago.

Mark says,  “I realized over time that just as a chair is a supportive structure, my parents have been more than supportive  of my being an artist. My chair paintings are thus my most personal series of work. This particular painting has been further enhanced with the lyrics to the song “A House Is Not A Home”,  a classic written by Hal David with music by Burt Bacharach and most popularly sung by Dusty Springfield, Dionne Warwick and Luther Vandross”.

  1. Chairs in art is something I’ve been hoping to see more of. The representation of chairs in art and music seems like a logical extension to our appreciation of the forms and styles of chairs. Art can be an inspiration in chair design and vice versa. The history is intertwined.

  2. Biro Tomodachi – agreed!! It’s also something I am interested in 🙂 As for Mark Gleberzon, I like how he views a chair as a “supportive structure”, which it most definately is, and how it has a double meaning here.
