"Ghost California" Painting by Artist Florian Roeper

$75,000

About

"Ghost California" is the California Dream dressed in black. This gold leaf painting plays with archetypal icons of California culture. The sun, gold, an arrow, Redwood. The arrow, shot at a golden sun (or is it a halo?) with a stark black bullseye, must kink itself to make its mark. The map of California is laser cut wood, lacquered black and filled with multiple coats of high gloss epoxy resin. One of a kind. "Ghost California" is part of Roeper's new High as a Kite Series, a selection of mixed-media paintings reflecting on the nature and pursuit of dreams, and the inherent challenges in achieving them. The works consist of appealing and novel imagery, butterflies, balloons and halos, grounded or contorted by reality. Pared down compositionally, the pieces make use of explicit graphics as visual punchline.

About the Maker

Studio Roeper

Studio Roeper is a California artisan studio dedicated to the creation of finely crafted luxury furniture for private residences, boutique hotels, design connoisseurs and art collectors around the world. Established by Florian Roeper in 2003, Studio Roeper maintains a flagship showroom in San Francisco’s Design District, as well as a boutique workshop in Alameda, CA. Born in Germany and a first-generation immigrant to California, Roeper draws inspiration from his multicultural background as well as from the crafts-oriented movements of Art Deco, Biedermeier and Japonisme. Having graduated with a degree in furniture design and sculpture, Roeper seeks to integrate his signature metal patinas and locally-sourced hardwoods into a design language of integrity and sophistication. Nearly all of the lumber used in the production of the furniture collection is sourced, milled and seasoned in-house at the Studio Roeper sawmill. Private individuals and interior designers who aspire to award spaces with an artistic and luxurious touch collaborate with the studio for unique custom made pieces. Studio Roeper has been honored by commissions from clients including Louis Vuitton, Four Seasons Hotels, Peter Marino Architect, Magni Design as well as major public figures and private collectors.
