Beth Rudin Dewoody on sending Tim Hailand to Giverny residency

Several years ago, in what was to be my last year of sending artists to Giverny for the residency sponsored by the Versailles / Giverny Foundation, I sent Tim Hailand as my artist. Besides doing a series of photo books with artist and celebrities, he started a series of photographs printed directly on interesting patterned fabrics. I was sure that the gorgeous garden that Monet lived in and painted would be a great inspiration to him as it had for the other artists I sent: Mickalene Thomas, EV Day, and Mark Fox among others. Little did I know that he would be inspired more from the insidethan the outside, using the toile de Jouy fabric as his background. The results are spectacular!!!!!
