Works by David Phoenix are part of a collaboration with art house Soicher Marin.
Last year, award-winning designer David Phoenix moved to Palm Beach, and the new resident is soaking up his time on our shores while also launching a product collaboration with third-generation art house Soicher Marin in Bradenton. “I feel connected to Palm Beach in many ways,” says Phoenix, whose new Scholar Series features seven collections of sophisticated images that span time periods and artistic mediums. “I’m inspired by being here—the light, the ocean and the architecture. Being a Palm Beach resident has given me a new perspective. I also just love living near the water!”
Reflecting Phoenix’s extensive interior design work, the collections are rooted in tradition and viewed through a unique, contemporary lens. “I’ve always been fascinated by classical European design and architecture as well as turn-of-the-century and modern art,” he says. “An intricate column study or a soulful brushstroke—beauty is beauty.”
The designer’s new Scholar Series explores pen and ink drawings, chalk and gouache studies, watercolors, photography and printed illustrations. “Over the years, inspired by travel, studies, even doodles, I’ve collected images that stuck with me. Soicher Marin really let me run with my vision. It’s been such a joy to see my ideas realized in beautiful prints on paper and canvas.”
The Scholar Series comprises 222 pieces in seven collections: Anatomy in Art, Architectural Origins, Renaissance Studies, Mosaic Musings, Celestial Visions, Abstract Expressions and Landscapes & Seascapes. “We could not be more thrilled,” says Eduardo Marin, president and CEO of Soicher Marin. “David’s collection is a true master class in art and design.” 4597 15th St. E., Bradenton, 941.308.7500
