This was the only door designed with the occupants of the studio in mind. Their love of landscape painting influenced Chris to create a door suggestive of landscape forms. Chris said, “I liked placing a landscape that is all about the horizontal in strongly vertical surroundings, namely the rectangle in portrait format, the repeated vertical bands, and the almost figurative-like presentation of the centered pedestal. Also, I liked the way the rusty vertical bands hang like drapery on the pedestal but stand like buildings on the sky shapes, reversing the functions dictated by their placement.”
