Ryue Nishizawa, Garden and House, Tokyo, 2006-2011 . Ryue Nishizawa’s collection of drawings and model photo prints of the “Garden and House” project gifted to the MoMA offer a distinctly diverse narrative than that displayed on architectural mainstream media. . Carefully composed photos of the colourful model along with printed CAD plans drawn over with a pencil or a felt pen emphasize the importance of process over that of the final product. With the lack of pictures of the finished building or “publication drawings” in the set of material gifted to the museum, Nishizawa raises the question of where is the art in architecture. .

David Hockney, Henry Geldzahler and Christopher Scott, 1969 . During the late 60s and 70s, Hockney painted a series of works depicting couples in interior settings which would go on to be called ‘Double Portraits’. He worked with friends and family to achieve natural and intimate scenes of domestic life. . The portrait of Geldzahler and Scott goes on auction next March. In their website, Christie’s tells the story behind the making of the painting: . “In December of 1968, Hockney arrived at Geldzahler’s New York apartment on 7th Avenue armed with his trusted Polaroid camera and sketchpad. At the time Geldzahler was working on the landmark show 'New York Painting and Sculpture: 1940-1970', which would lead to him being described in New York magazine as ‘the most powerful and controversial art curator alive’. . By the end of the month Hockney had returned to his London studio, where he ‘started the picture straight away’, sketching the image’s elements out on to the huge canvas which he propped against an interior wall. . By the beginning of February 1969 Hockney had taped 25 radiating lines from a point two inches above Geldzahler’s head in the very middle of the canvas to the bottom of the stretcher. The effect, based on Renaissance principles pioneered by Piero della Francesca, established a precise one-point linear perspective that foreshortened the objects nearest to the viewer with great precision. ‘It looked like an incredible radiant glow from a halo around Henry’s head,’ Hockney said. . The finished work was promptly shipped to New York before being unveiled at André Emmerich Gallery. The plain-spoken Geldzahler would himself go on to say that the work was Hockney’s watershed moment, a point when the artist decided to become ‘the best artist he could be’.” .

Francesco di Giorgio Martini, Plan variations for houses in “Trattato di architettura”, version II, 1497-1500 . From “The Trattato as Textbook: Francesco di Giorgio’s Vision for the Renaissance Architect” by Elizabeth M. Merrill: . “By granting the image such authority, Francesco also demonstrates “disegno” as an expression of “ingegno” and means of “invenzione”. On almost every subject, he provides multiple examples of each design type. The section on “case e palazzi”, for example, features sixty-eight plans for four types of houses and palaces. This exaggerated display emphasizes the infinite number of possible design solutions, and shows how, through drawing, the architect might experiment with different forms and develop new ideas. The Trattato images, however, are conceptual illustrations, not definitive plans. Francesco’s illustrations do not include dimensions, have few labels, and are not consistent in scale. Developed with an eye toward reproduction, the clear, unequivocal models were ideal for workshop study and reference. . (…) The Trattato di architettura, therefore, was a didactic text, a manual for the working architect to refer to as his training progressed. Its efficacy as such may be traced in its great popularity among architects. In the sixteenth century, copies of the Trattato were ubiquitous. Preeminent artist-architects, including Leonardo da Vinci, Fra Giocondo, Baldassare Peruzzi, Jacopo da Vignola, Vincenzo Scamozzi, and Philibert del’Orme, carefully studied the Trattato and incorporated Francesco’s ideas into their built and written works.” .

Maître de Mansel and Maîtres de Guillebert de Mets, Illustrations for a French edition of The Decameron, 1430-1440 . Giovanni Boccaccio’s Decameron (1348-1353) contains a collection of short stories as told by a group of 10 people (seven women and three men) who have sought refuge from a plague in a villa in the outskirts of Florence. Every day each of them tells a story on a given topic, and the 100 tales offer a compilation of salacious adventures told with humour and wit. . Its entertaining and decidedly not moralizing character made the book extremely popular at the time, particularly among merchants who spread the word around. The drawings shown here belong to a French edition of the manuscript. . More images and info in aseriesofrooms.com .

HOUSE (Plan) 2/4: these live/work units are accessed through a very small door which gives access to a giant office in the front; the work/space is connected to a double-space library on the right and to the rest of the house on the left. The false topography of the house distributes the utilitarian spaces as a cascade of lower and lower functions starting with the living room and ending with a family room facing the pool patio. Four equally-sized bedrooms form an interior “Strada Nova” facade. © Jaime Correa, 2018 #axo_madness #architecture #rationalarchitecture #koozarch #archdaily #dezeen #critday #soarch #architizer #lovesdomus #amazing_architecture #the_best_new_architects #arch_grap #next_top_architects #nextarch #theopenworkshop #architectanddesign #illustrarch #domusweb #artnexuscorp #portoacademy #aseriesofrooms #abitare_magazine #house #polycarbonate

HOUSE (Sections) 3/4: as each function of the house occupies its own plate level, the interior facades of the four bedrooms and library are intensified with the perceptual phenomenology of various color schemes. The kitchen area is covered with green metallic plates hiding the typical appliances within its walls.

Christian Tilemann-Petersen, An Interior of a Salon at Fredensborg, 1921 . In his paintings of Danish Baroque palaces such as Fredensborg or Ledreborg, Christian Tilemann-Petersen shifts the attention from the grandiosity of the spaces to the relationship between rooms connected by an open door, or between the scattered pieces of furniture and art. The paintings’ focused point of view provides an intimate atmosphere, even if the spaces look uninhabited (yet not abandoned). Every object seems carefully displayed, not a thing out of place, following a pre-planned composition that is intended for visitors, but not for everyday life. .

The rooms of Villa Medici, as portrayed by their residents, 1800s . Originally built with grand lavishness in the 1500s to assert the importance of the Medici family among the Roman power structure, Villa Medici came into possession of the French government during the Napoleonic times. In 1803, the French Academy in Rome moved into the Villa and housed the artists who had won the Prix de Rome until 1968, when the prize was abolished. . During their stay in Rome, many of the residents painted the interior of the Villa, often placing themselves or a fellow artist resident in the rooms they were inhabiting. Put together, the paintings offer a portrait of the life of young artists living away from home in community, in a way that is not dissimilar to how international exchange programs such as Erasmus work nowadays. .

Luigi Ghirri, Studio di Aldo Rossi, 1989-90 . (A Series of Rooms turns two years old today, and so we go back to the first artist we ever published, Luigi Ghirri.) . Luigi Ghirri once wrote that Rossi’s works had helped him “clarify all the doubts and suspicions that I had long harboured about architectural photography” and that it contained “this miraculous balance between what we already know and expect from an architectural work and the sense of disorientation we experience when faced with something new”. . After weekends spent photographing the cemetery of Modena in solitude (which was still in construction at the time) and establishing a deep connection with its architecture, Ghirri and Rossi went on to collaborate in many occasions during the following decades. . In the late eighties, Ghirri captured the studio of Aldo Rossi in a series of images that, along with those taken in Giorgio Morandi’s Atelier, offer a glimpse into the private spaces of two of the most important Italian creative of the time. . Models and drawings cover the walls of the studio, all painted in different shades of blue. Books, sculptures and a collection of teapots sit on shelves and on the fireplace. .

Gonzalo Fonseca . Inspired by architecture, archaeology and constructivism, Gonzalo Fonseca sculpted spaces into matter. Combining the roughness of the unpolished stone (limestone, marble…) with the carefully detailed carved rooms and staircases, Fonseca’s works have the quality of being both abstract compositions and scaled models of imaginary places. .

Plan of Millbank Prison in London, 1812-1821 . In the lands where now stands Tate Britain, there was once Britain’s National Penitentiary. After William Williams, a drawing master, won the architectural competition for the new prison in 1812, a succession of architects that included Thomas Hardwick and Robert Smirke were appointed to lead its construction, which ended in 1821. . From the "Handbook of London" (1850): . The external walls form an irregular octagon, and enclose upwards of sixteen acres of land. Its ground-plan resembles a wheel, the governor's house occupying a circle in the centre, from which radiate six piles of building, terminating externally in towers. (…) It is the largest prison in London. Every male and female convict sentenced to transportation in Great Britain is sent to Millbank previous to the sentence being executed. Here they remain about three months under the close inspection of the three inspectors of the prison, at the end of which time the inspectors report to the Home Secretary, and recommend the place of transportation. The number of persons in Great Britain and Ireland condemned to transportation every year amounts to about 4000. .

Serigne Omar Sy, Murid community in Djourbel, 1994-ongoing . In the outskirts of the city of Djourbel, in Senegal, stands a Murid Sufist community that has built its own headquarters with nothing else than reeds, straw, and sticks. A series of rooms and courtyards create a particular universe in perpetual change, as both arson and the expected expiration of its core materials make its constant renovation imperative. . From “The visual performative of Senegalese Sufism” by Allen F. Roberts and Mary Nooter Roberts: . “A final study was of Serigne Sy’s astonishing environment built on the outskirts of Djourbel that gives tangible form to the power of writing as understood by Senegalese Sufis. In creating a compound entirely from reeds, straw, and sticks in recognition with the stylus with which one writes the Word of God, the hardy community has found a way to live within a text so mystical that few can hope to read its letters and phrases, yet all can benefit from its blessings. Two conflagrations and the need for constant replacement of weathered or termite-damaged straw have proven that the processes and performances are more significant than any completed productions. “Trust in God”, as the place is now known, is also hauntingly beautiful, as builder-residents are very prepared to state in compelling aesthetic terms. What is seen in the exaltations of triangles and other features is lived by Serigne Sy and his community, as visual achievements merge with devotion.” . More images and info in aseriesofrooms.com .

#Repost @aseriesofrooms ・・・ Fra Angelico, The mocking of Christ, 1441 . During the 1440s, Fra Angelico painted a series of frescos on the walls of the cells of San Marco in Florence, portraying religious visions. The paintings, meant to be observed only by the monks inhabiting the space and not by the general public, offer a more ascetic point of view than that normally shown in works on public display, and the architecture surrounding the characters is similar to the construction of the convent, establishing a relationship of proximity between the viewer and the scene depicted. . In the case of this painting, Christ sits blindfolded on a throne in an austere room. The figures that traditionally attack or mock him are reduced to dismembered parts of bodies floating around the space, symbols to be understood only by those with knowledge of the larger narrative. . The image conveys a dreamy atmosphere that connects with certain elements of the surrealist avant-garde that took place five centuries later. .

John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Bed-In for Peace, 1969 . After a private wedding ceremony in Gibraltar, John Lennon and Yoko Ono converted their honeymoon into a very public art performance. For one week they turned their suite in the Amsterdam Hilton International Hotel into a stage in which they greeted journalists from all over the world to fight for world peace and the end of the Vietnam war. . The photographs of the carefully staged scene of a bed against the window light, occupied by John and Yoko in their pyjamas, surrounded by handwritten peace statements, were published in newspapers all around the world, further establishing their image as both pop icons and peace activists. . In a highly recommended opinion piece, Beatriz Colomina writes about this: . “The Bed-In received unprecedented media coverage all over the world. One room in an Amsterdam hotel became the most famous bedroom in the world. In the biggest possible expansion of the big glass windows that typically expose the domestic interior of Dutch houses, or even Amsterdam’s red-light district and its famous inversion of public and private with sex workers displaying their wares to the passersby (…) A kind of privacy was constructed in the middle of massive exposure. The bed oscillated between exposure and concealment.” More images and info in aseriesofrooms.com .

Damián Ortega, Cosmogonía Doméstica, 2014 . Damián Ortega first came to the international spotlight with Cosmic Thing (2002), a work in which he disassembled a Volkswagen Beetle and made all of its components, from the small mechanisms to its external bodywork pieces, hang from invisible threads and float in the space. Ever since, his work has been interested in the transformation and re-contextualization of objects we take for granted, with the erection of large-scale works that hide their complex construction and, like a magic trick, appear deceitfully simple at first sight. . In “Cosmogonía Doméstica”, his made to measure work for the urban space in front of the Jumex Foundation in his hometown of Ciudad de Mexico, he turned everyday objects that he owned (chairs, a table, kitchenware) into a constellation of floating elements in a never-ending dance. Like planets, each element is attached to one of five circular platforms and rotates both on itself and around a table that is set on the centre of the piece. The five platforms are clad in the same stone masonry as that of the public square, and so the urban space integrates the art piece in a subtle but surreal way. . Ortega has defined the ideas behind this work as a schizophrenic carousel or a homemade solar system, but when building it, he realized the structure it most resembled was that of a clock. The objects, exposed to the weather conditions, degrade in front of the eyes of people passing by and bring the human scale of domesticity to the urban space of one of the largest cities in the world. .

Georges Rousse, Anamorphoses . Georges Rousse’s pieces work in two different stages. The first one involves the creation of a site-specific intervention in a particular space, normally an abandoned building. The second one is the photograph of said space, taken from a very precise point of view, in which the three-dimensional intervention becomes an abstract two-dimensional composition that hides the complexity of its construction. He is a photographer, but also a painter and a sculptor. . Coming from a scientific background (he was studying medicine when he became interested in photography), it was the discovery of both land art and Malevich’s Suprematism that pushed him to realize his first works in the field. Their influence is apparent in the powerful simplicity of the part of the work that remains, the resulting image. While his interventions are often ephemeral, the photographs are not, and so the viewer only gets to see a defined optical illusion, and not the effort behind it. . From a fragment of the biography in his website: “His raw material is Space: the space of deserted buildings. Taking his inspiration from a site's architectonic quality and the light he finds there, he quickly chooses a « fragment » and creates a mise-en-scène, keeping in mind his ultimate goal, creating a photographic image. In these empty spaces, Georges Rousse constructs a kind of utopia that projects his vision of the world - his imaginary universe.” . More images and info in aseriesofrooms.com .

David Hockney, Self-Portrait with Blue Guitar / Model with Unfinished Self-Portrait, 1977 . Hockney's prolific career is full of meta references of himself and others. This series of paintings and photographs is no exception. In "Self-Portrait with Blue Guitar", he portrays himself while drawing a blue guitar, in reference to the series of etchings "The Blue Guitar" he was doing at that moment , inspired by Wallace Stevens' poem "Man with the Blue Guitar" (Stevens was himself inspired by Picasso), while a sculpture of the head of Dora Maar (Picasso's lover) floats nearby. . In "Model with Unfinished Self-Portrait", a work-in-progress of "Man with the Blue Guitar" serves as the background of the scene depicting a model sleeping in a blue robe (the same shade as the painting's curtain) and offers an experimental instance of the "double portraits" in which he was also working at the time. From the Tate retrospective catalog: . ”Near life-sized, these carefully staged compositions combine informal poses and settings with the grandeur and formality of traditional portraiture. Almost all these works are painted in acrylic, which dries quickly and cannot be scraped off the canvas, thus demanding a greater degree of planning and meticulous application. This process, with its greater capacity for scrutiny and observation, meant that Hockney could work from photographic studies to sketch out overall compositions but he chose to paint his figures from life.” .

Ettore Sottsass with Eulàlia Grau, Do you want to sit in the sun... Or do you want to sit in the shade? (part of the series Metaphors), 1973 . During the early 1970s, Sottsass went through ‘’a period of emptiness and introvert meditation. Of purification and release from everything that constituted the laws, customs and vocabulary of rationalist culture.’’ His relationship with Catalan artist Eulàlia Grau had him leading a nomadic life between his home and studio base in Milano and extended journeys around Spain. In deep contact with the landscape and its nature, they created a series of small, ephemeral constructions of a fragile appearance and built with poor, rather precarious materials. . ‘’I felt a deep necessity to visit deserted places, mountains; to re-establish a physical relationship with the cosmos, which is the only real environment, precisely because it can’t be measured, foreseen, controlled or known… it seemed to me that if anything was to be regained we would have to begin by regaining microscopic gestures and elementary actions, the sense of one’s own position…’’ . The photographs of the interventions, taken by Sottsass himself, reveal a very particular point of view, in equal parts poetry and irony, both playful and grounded. They are an experimental reflection on the nomadic lifestyle and a reacquaintance with the essence of architecture: its language and its relation to the human body. .

Christian Tilemann-Petersen, Interior at Clausholm, 1909 . In his paintings of Danish Baroque palaces, Christian Tilemann-Petersen shifts the attention from the grandiosity of the spaces to the relationship between rooms connected by an open door, or between the scattered pieces of furniture and art. . The paintings’ focused point of view provides an intimate atmosphere, even if the spaces look uninhabited (yet not abandoned). Every object seems carefully displayed, not a thing out of place, following a pre-planned composition that is intended for visitors, but not for everyday life. . More images in aseriesofrooms.com .

Giovanni Battista Piranesi, Frammenti di marmo della Pianta di Roma antica, 1756 . The Forma Urbis Romae or Severan Marble Plan was a large map of the city of Rome carved on marble. In a scale of approximately 1:240, it measured 18m wide by 13m high and was divided into 150 marble slabs that were mounted on an interior wall of the Templum Pacis at around 203-211 A.D. . With all of its walls and columns precisely incised on the stone, the plan represents mass and void, and the city is understood as a sum of interconnected spaces: from public to private, interior or exterior, big or small… All of them represented in the same way, no difference is made between the domestic room and the public temple. . The plan is believed to have collapsed after the metal clamps that fixed it to the wall were stolen, or just dismounted and converted into construction material for new buildings. The first recovered pieces were found in 1562 and were kept in the hands of private collectors until 1741, when the city of Rome acquired them. Many scholars have studied the fragments, in the effort of learning about the original map and the city it represented. Piranesi drew them in a series of engravings from 1756 included in the first volume of Antichità Romane. . More images and info in the entry about Forma Urbis Romae in aseriesofrooms.com .

Edward Hopper, Office in a Small City, 1953 . Hopper’s paintings have the ability of precisely capturing instants of everyday life, sublimating the ordinary and the quietness. The women and men that populate his works often seem absorbed in their own thoughts and an atmosphere of melancholia surrounds them. . The architecture of the spaces represented establishes a clear separation between inside and outside: two different worlds visually united by the ever-present element of the window. From the outside in, the viewer voyeuristically observes the intimate lives of strangers. From the inside out, windows frame the surrounding landscape as a painting on the wall, but one in constant transformation. During the day, windows allow the sunlight in, creating abstract compositions on the walls and floor. At night, the interior light escapes the contained stage of domestic life and spreads into the surrounding darkness. . More images in aseriesofrooms.com .

Franz Erhard Walther, Vier Körpergewichte (Four Body Weights), 1968 . “Franz Erhard Walther is internationally recognized for his five-decade-long investigation into the spatial, sensorial, and temporal dimensions of forms-preoccupations he shares with such contemporaries as Donald Judd, Walter de Maria, Richard Serra, and Blinky Palermo. Since his first experiments during the early 1960s, Walther’s work has occupied a unique position in the development of post-World War II avant-garde practice, as he radically abandoned conventional modes of painting and sculpture in order to examine the process of art rather than its product. Walther’s distinctive approach to thinking through the problems visual artists traditionally face –those of form, materials, space, and subject- led him to conceiving objects and images that challenged the beholder to act. In acknowledging the impact of viewers’ presence and actions in real time and space, Walther attempts to suspend the sense of isolation and self-absorption that is often associated with viewing art.” .

Nathalie du Pasquier, Intérieur avec peintures murals, 1984 . Nathalie du Pasquier’s career first came defined by her belonging to the Memphis Group founded by Ettore Sottsass in the early 1980s, and which became one of the major driving forces of post-modernism. Her colourist axonometries showed bold interiors clad with her designs of furnishings and textiles. . As interest in the radical approach of domesticity proposed by the Memphis Group faded in favour of the sleek minimalism that would come to define the late 80s and the 90s, du Pasquier also turned her interest from commercial design into painting and art. .

John Loengard, Ad Reinhardt in his studio, New York, NY, 1966 • For the last decade of his life, abstract artist Ad Reinhardt painted exclusively square paintings in various shades of black that revealed their full tonal complexity only on a closer look. He described this works as "a pure, abstract, non-objective, timeless, spaceless, changeless, relationless, disinterested painting—an object that is self-conscious (no unconsciousness), ideal, transcendent, aware of no thing but art." • In 1966, photographer John Loengard visited his studio, the walls covered with paintings on top of more paintings, and captured the artist at work. • @aseriesofrooms —— „ (...) black surfaces and attempted to remove hints of his own creative gestures. The final products, five-by-five-foot canvases, leave the viewer gazing into a dark void while (Reinhardt hoped) questioning their own existence.” - @alinacohen @artsy #aseriesofrooms #adreinhardt #painting #documentingspace #johnleongard #abstract #nonobjective #abstractart #nonobjectiveart #modernart #abstractexpressionism #monochromatism

The ateliers of Frédéric Bazille . French painter Frédéric Bazille’s career was cut short when he died in the battlefield of the Franco-Prussian War in 1870, at the age of 28. Before that, in the 1860s, he was part of the group of artists developing a style of their own that would come to be known as impressionism, and during that time he shared studios with some of them. . He worked side by side with Claude Monet in the Atelier de la rue de Furstenberg (first image, 1865), shared the space in the Atelier de la Rue Visconti (second image, 1867) with Pierre-Auguste Renoir. . The last painting shows a lively scene in his studio in rue de La Condamine (1870). Bazille wrote to his father about this painting that “Manet painted me in”, alluding to the fact that the tall figure in the centre of the painting appears to have a thicker brushstroke. Hanging on the walls there are paintings by his colleagues, which had been rejected by the Academy for the annual Parisian Salon. .

Elia and Zoe Zenghelis, Hotel Sphinx in New York, 1975 . “I started thinking that the so called ‘existenz minimum’ should be that of a luxury hotel. I extended that to the idea that a luxury hotel offers the possibility of an alternative way of living. I thought that life in a mix of apartments and houses, in a concentrated and congested urban condition, can be very exciting, especially if an efficiently managed luxury hotel supports that life.” . Excerpt from “A Coversation with Elia Zenghelis”, by Cynthia Davidson for Log No. 30 (Winter 2014) . “Elia and Zoe Zenghelis designed the Hotel Sphinx for Times Square, at the intersection of Broadway and Seventh Avenue, that was included in Rem Koolhaas’ book “Delirious New York”. It proposed and urban hotel as a model for mass housing. Each physical part of the hotel as sphinx accommodates different programmatic functions: the legs contain escalators ascending to theaters, auditoriums, and ballrooms; the two towers of the tail contain studio apartments; the neck contains social clubs; the head is dedicated to relaxation and sports; and the spine houses hotel rooms, apartments, and villas with terraced gardens. Manhattan was intended to function as an extended lobby providing all possible amenities, and, likewise, the ground floor and mezzanine were designed to draw in the city an to take on the character of the Times Square area, a notoriously seedy neighbourhood in the 1970s.” . Excerpt from the book ‘The Changing of the Avant-Garde: Visionary Architectural Drawings from the Howard Gilman Collection’, of the exhibition of the same name at MoMA in 2002 .

Anne Holtrop, Plan of the Felt Pavilion, 2012-2013 . The exhibition space for furniture brand Pastoe in Rotterdam’s Kunsthal explores with unexpected results the movement and gravity of felt. Its whitish tone and the thinness of the material have a porcelain effect of fragile appearance, which contrasts with the inherent warmth of the fabric. . Maaike Lauwaert wrote this for 2G 73: “The walls of the pavilion are of 1.5 cm thick felt in a pale grey, almost white colour. They hang from the ceiling from steel cables, which makes their flexibility all the more visible. The felt creates impossible convolutions and corners that a harder material would be unable to achieve.” .

Rudolf Steiner, Goetheanum, 1925-1928 . Austrian philosopher, scientist, educator and architect Rudolf Steiner projected the Goetheanum building in the city of Dornach as the headquarters for the Anthroposophical Society, a movement or philosophy of life he had greatly contributed to create. Anthroposophy means “wisdom of the human being” and proposes the “existence of an objective, intellectually comprehensible spiritual world, accessible to human experience through inner development”. Waldorf education, biodynamic agriculture, anthroposophical medicine or ethical banking were all born from the ideas in the philosophy developed by Steiner, who also contributed to an idea of architecture that was liberated from traditional constraints, expressive, a stage for life that could allow for sensory experiences and perceptions to become apparent. . The first Goetheanum was built in wood and was destroyed by arson. Steiner then proposed a new building made of concrete, of which the room shown in this image is still part of. . #aseriesofrooms #documentingspace #domesticity #rudolfsteiner #goetheanum #architecture #anthroposophy #architecturephotography #architecturalphotography #roomoftheday

Charles Sheeler, Kitchen, Williamsburg, 1937 . American artist Charles works move with ease between disciplines that include painting, photography, printmaking or film. . In a brief note on the catalogue of the exhibition ‘Charles Sheeler: paintings, drawings, photographs” shown in MoMA in 1939, he wrote about the two means of representation: “Pictures realistically conceived might have an underlying abstract structure. (…) My interest in photography, paralleling that in painting, has been based on admiration for its possibility of accounting for the visual world with an exactitude not equalled by any other medium. The difference is the manner of arrival at their destination –the painting being the result of a composite image and the photograph being the result of a single image– prevents these media from being competitive" .

Plans of the home inhabited by Symeon the Stylite . Saint Simeon Stylites chose a life of austerity and humility. Ironically, he rose to prominence precisely because of his extreme way of life, in which he gradually increased the ascetism of his domestic setting. . His obsession with Christianity had him entering a monastery before he was 16. His radical practice of austerity was deemed too extreme for the communal life, and so he was asked to leave. He then spent one year and a half on a hut, before establishing his home inside a large excavated cone rock. . He would later move onto a small platform on top of a pillar, his last and most radical room, but the rock he once inhabited still stands today in what is now known as the Pasabag valley in Cappadocia, Turkey. .

Njideka Akunyili Crosby, 2010s . Nigerian-born, American-resident artist Njideka Akunyili Crosby aims to avoid the sensationalised topics and clichés frequently attributed to the African experience in the western mind (misery, illness, war, corruption…) and instead chooses to put her focus on the normal life. . With a technique that engages on the European figurative tradition and transforms it with a combination of old photographs (both personal and collected from the media), patterns and acrylic painting, she creates domestic scenes of family and friends that provide an inside view into the intimacy of the every day. On a closer look, the works reveal layers of information hidden in plain view, with the images and fabrics and texts embedded in the images all explaining stories and traditions of their own. .

Fra Angelico, The mocking of Christ, 1441 . During the 1440s, Fra Angelico painted a series of frescos on the walls of the cells of San Marco in Florence, portraying religious visions. The paintings, meant to be observed only by the monks inhabiting the space and not by the general public, offer a more ascetic point of view than that normally shown in works on public display, and the architecture surrounding the characters is similar to the construction of the convent, establishing a relationship of proximity between the viewer and the scene depicted. . In the case of this painting, Christ sits blindfolded on a throne in an austere room. The figures that traditionally attack or mock him are reduced to dismembered parts of bodies floating around the space, symbols to be understood only by those with knowledge of the larger narrative. . The image conveys a dreamy atmosphere that connects with certain elements of the surrealist avant-garde that took place five centuries later. .

Adolf Loos, Das Schlafzimmer meiner Frau, 1903 . These two images of the bedroom Adolf Loos designed for his wife Lina show a dreamy and tactile scenography in which the bed appears to float on a sea of angora. The walls and closets are hidden behind curtains in a continuum of soft white fabrics bathed in the light entering from the windows. . The photographs were first published in the inaugural number of ‘Kunst’ magazine in 1903. Plans or images of the other rooms of the house were never published while Loos was alive, and only surfaced in monographs decades later. .

Anke Becker, Economic Words, 2012 - ongoing . German artist Anke Becker’s ongoing series “Economic Words” isolates words of Financial Times’ newspaper articles to create new stories with little to no resemblance to the original writing. The results are both abstract compositions of black ink on salmon pink paper and “calligrammes” in which the randomly placed words stand out to create a meaning of its own. . With over one thousand examples to be found on her specific website, a few deal with the intimacy of being at home. .

Chilean architects Mauricio Pezo and Sofia von Ellrichshausen’s series of paintings “Exterior” presents details of spaces depicted in ambiguous shapes of colour. The resulting images work both as abstract compositions and figurative representations of nondescript architectures. . “We are not interested in describing a particular moment of the day, they are not operating with that precision. They evoke a certain mood, a certain character and atmosphere, which is closer to the memory of a place, to our own imagination of a memorable place. In fact, the very size of the painting introduces a distortion of reality because your body, the position of your eyes, defines a perspective that is always changing.” .
