As New York City art is so deeply ingrained in our culture, it seemed fitting that, second to the incredible city views, art is the focal point of design in The Towers. We have honored New York City’s dedication to art by incorporating interesting and intriguing pieces into the décor of The Towers Suites.
Working with Nancy Sweeney, Principal of Art Advisory Service, The Palace commissioned an abstract aluminum sculpture from Matt Gil to greet guests in each Towers Executive Suite. Gil explains that the elegant curves of the sculpture offer insight into the world around us, inspired by objects and beings we see every day. The sculpture is entirely unique to The New York Palace, it is a luxury reserved for our guests.
You’ll find more New York City artwork in the living room of The Towers Executive Suite, featuring a piece from Deborah Zlotsky. The print is an installment from the series “Adjacent Possibilities” in which the artist investigates the reality of alternating one’s state of being by deviating from a designated path. Zlotsky explains, “Accidents repeatedly redirect me, blurring my understanding of the difference between accident and intention.” She uses color, shadows and shapes to illustrate this evolutionary experience offering complex possibilities.
The experience continues in each of The Towers guestrooms, where contemporary abstract prints offer a vibrant pop of color. Suzanne Ulrich uses a blend of collage and oil painting techniques to investigate the use of lines and shapes through layering and lifting. Her pieces no. 1757 and no. 1760 add a touch of intrigue to the decor. This installment is particularly interesting, marked by Ulrich as “by far my most mature body of work.”
