Adi Goodrich | Guest Curator
Adi Goodrich is a Los Angeles-based spatial designer, specializing in commercial interiors, large-scale set design, site-specific art installations, and furniture design. For the last three decades, Adi has studied the rare art of truly looking. Raised in a wood-shop alongside her father, an architectural restorer and antiques dealer, Adi fell in love with materiality and construction and the people who’ve mastered it at an unusually young age.
She studied painting with the Chicago Imagists at School of the Art Institute of Chicago and La Sorbonne in Paris, and designed window displays for Barneys New York and Anthropologie before embarking on a decade-long career in set design for films and commercials. Her clients include Google, Apple, Lyft, Lavazza, Target, Instagram, Flamingo Estate, Wine & Eggs, Ace Hotel & more.
Above all else, Adi believes that good design has the power to enhance peoples' daily lives. Her obsession with color, materiality and storytelling leads her to build the bright, new worlds for the cities she loves.
Adi lives in Los Angeles and is co-founder of Sing-Sing Studio with her partner, filmmaker, Sean Pecknold.
“I love Leigh Wells' work. It's such a wonderful take on collage. These silhouette cut-out collages really resonate with me because they feel like a surrealist dream, a memory or lost moment in time. The cream ground gives a nostalgic feel and make me long for a less complicated past when black and white photography was the only option- her floral works are so beautiful.”On Leigh Wells' Versos 10-03-02
“I really love these dimensional pieces from Tadahiro Gunji. This particular piece is a great contrast of colors with the warm brown and teal + pink gradient. I'm a real fan of art that isn't set within the bounds of a rectangle or square- these dimensional pieces he creates are more objects to live with than paintings to look at. They are physical; these pieces cast shadows and the glossy surface will reflect any light in the room. I'm obsessed.”On Tadahiro Gunji’s Collectivity 073
“These inky paintings by Marleigh Culver really get me! I can imagine staring at these rorschach-test-like compositions all day trying to sort out the stories of these abstract shapes. What's better than deep black calligraphic work, not much!”On Marleigh Culver's The First Steps
“Ethan Caflisch is reallllly good at color. I love his simple blocks of two colors sitting next to each other- simple but SO PERFECT. Sometimes a piece doesn't have to be more than a beautiful dance of two colors. ”On Ethan Caflisch’s floating on butte des morts
“Who isn't jealous when someone can draw? Really draw! I am. And, I adore the drawings by Martinet + Texereau. The depictions of these lonely city landscapes are killin' me and I want to hang them all over my home. I'm not sure why, but I've always connected to spaces depicted without people and this series really hits.”On Martinet + Texereau’s Garage 2
