Architectural Digest visited with Brett Gorvy and Amy Gold at home recently to see how two art world figures live with their art:
The collection he and Gold have assembled emphasizes photographs and works on paper that are primarily intimate in scale and tend toward the monochromatic. Canon dwellers like Cy Twombly, Agnes Martin, and Yayoi Kusama have their place, but the mix is not one of obvious brand-name prizes. Instead these are subtle pieces that reward close attention: Examine a Gabriel Orozco photograph of a piano keyboard and see the artist’s own breath, or study a Hiroshi Sugimoto nightscape and find the faintest reflection of the moon. Obsessively intricate black-and-white drawings by Bruce Conner factor prominently throughout the two-bedroom apartment, which the couple shares with their eight-year-old daughter, Tamsin. Displayed against a backdrop of muted tones and luxurious textures, the art contributes to an overall effect that is serene, even quiet. “When I come home I want to be with my things and feel cocooned,” Gold says.
