From the time I was introduced to John Scofiled, I have learnt a lot from the Kent-based artist who creates poetic furniture and magnificent abstract paintings. Because John who began his career at the studios of Wendell Castle and Robert Motherwell, merges art, design, and scholarship, and he is very generous about sharing his knowledge and expertise. You may have seen his graceful, almost fragile folding music stand which is now on view at MoMA's show "Music and Design," curated by Juliet Kinchin and Luke Baker. The exhibition comes to explore the affinity between design and music in the light of aesthetics of rhythm, harmony, interaction, and improvisation. I loved watching the John's interview with Ann Nyberg who unveils not only the deep thought and philosophy behind John's work, but also his affinity with Motherwell and Norman Rockwell.
