I love collecting original works of art to fill my home with character. I fell in love with Carter Kustera’s work when I first saw some of his brightly-hughed silhouettes gracing the walls of the Jonathan Adler store in West Hollywood near my old apartment.
I couldn’t resist the artist’s interpretation on a classic and invested in a set of silhouettes of my husband and me. Each silhouette is custom made to order based on a profile photo submitted by the customer. To complete the work, each piece gets a custom quote written in pencil by Kustera below the silhouette itself.
I opted for a more classic black silhouette of the two of us and made sure the photos I selected were facing each other so that in the final product the silhouettes would face each other as well.
To date, these two hand painted silhouettes are some of my favorite pieces in my home. I framed them in two unique gold frames. I love them so much, I am considering adding a silhouette of each of my children to our collection.
