Celebrating Matisse – Stephen talks to AD how Matisse had influenced his work
In celebration of the highly anticipated exhibit “Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs” at MoMA. Architectural Digest sat down with Stephen Sills and chat about his introduction to Matisse and how the artist’s work had influenced his own work.
“AD100 interior designer Stephen Sills also worked with original Matisses for a project on Long Island’s North Shore (shown). “The first time I really realized the genius of Matisse was when I was in college and saw a reproduction of The Red Studio,” he says. “That’s when I was really getting immersed in interior design, and that entire canvas is divided into planes of rooms, furniture, and objects. It’s obviously a beautiful masterpiece but was for me just the beginning of the work I would soon discover from this truly amazing and inspiring artist.”
