ARTmonday: 15 Pieces from Restoration Hardware’s Contemporary Art Gallery

A couple of  years ago Restoration Hardware opened a 28,000-square foot gallery, complete with roof garden in the Meatpacking District in New York. In August ArtNet reported that the gallery would close. While the brick & mortar venture was short-lived, the online outpost remains. 

Restoration Hardware’s Contemporary Art Gallery offers what seem to be the same pieces that were on display in real life. ArtNet dismisses the artwork as mostly painting that “leans heavily toward decorative, easy-on-the-eyes abstraction.” I don’t care what they say. . . Maybe the artists won’t wind up at the Whitney (or maybe some will); I  like them. No need to be snobby. 

Here is a sampling of 15 pieces from  Restoration Hardware’s Contemporary Art Gallery online. There are videos online too if you’re particularly interested in any of the artists, most of whom are from cities scattered throughout Europe.
