I spotted this chair painting at the Architectural Digest Home Show and it struck a chord. Entitled “A Chair Is Still A Chair…” by Mark Gleberzon, the work is part of an ongoing series of chair-themed paintings. Gleberzon explained that the first model he used for his chair series was a chair taken from his parents’ house about 20 years ago.
Mark says, “I realized over time that just as a chair is a supportive structure, my parents have been more than ‘supportive’ of my being an artist. My chair paintings are thus my most personal series of work. This particular painting has been further enhanced with the lyrics to the song ‘A House Is Not A Home,’ a classic written by Hal David with music by Burt Bacharach and most popularly sung by Dusty Springfield, Dionne Warwick and Luther Vandross.”
