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!!!!!
