'Standing Figure' by Dick Shanley
Size: 67" high x 7" wide x 8" deep
Available in the gallery.
Dick Shanley’s graceful, exquisitely modeled sculptures are inspired by the human form. Shanley, who first became known for his sculptural furniture, turned to making sculpture in 1977, after a meeting with Henry Moore. Indeed, it is the art of Henry Moore, Alexander Archipenko, Jean Arp, Constantin Brancusi, and Alberto Giacometti, the elegant simplicity of their forms, that informs his sculpture. #shopbabou
More ethereal vibes.

The designer F. Taylor Colantonio’s loft in #Rome is decorated with theatrical arrangements of flea market finds and his own handcrafted touches. At his apartment’s towering picture window, a ceramic tiger — found at Rome’s Porta Portese market — stands guard, across from a daybed upholstered with hand-painted violet-striped linen. Colantonio composed an intricate savanna mural for the wall above. See more inside his apartment and studio at the link in our bio. Photo by @federicotorra.
