The Shulman House and Studio, LA and the Muir Dawson House are both from a series of watercolor paintings that I have made based on Julius Shulman's photography. They are inspired from the immense collection of photographs that Shulman took of the modernist architecture movement that developed in California during the mid 1900s. His photographs were used to sell these experimental buildings and houses to individual people and the public. Today his iconic pictures are still telling the story of a complicated and idyllic time culturally and politically. My interest in California architecture began as a student learning about Richard Neutra's Kaufmann House in Palm Springs. Schulman was the photographer of the first images I saw. These pictures have been seared into my memory. My love of experimental architecture has developed from spending years in a cabin that my father, an architect, designed and built himself. And today, my own family spends time upstate in our solar and wind powered studio. It has a geodesic dome, and a fold out wall that turns into a deck and can be open to the elements. It is very experimental and was designed and built by my partner, Paul. As an outsider researching architecture in California, I began with photography books and the internet. My entry into this world was not going to be a trip to California to shoot my favorite buildings myself. I am not a photographer and I do not have physical access to the houses. This is when I decided to use Shulman's photos. Shulman's photos are the best. He had the skill, the equipment and the first look at most of the buildings. They are the best research documents for someone living and working in NYC.
