Orange "Lot C" Artwork Questions Answered


Last week's post on the color orange contained the above image.  Like a bright shot of citrus vitamin C, this industrial art piece really resonated with a lot of you.  More than half the comments sang the praises of this unique poster, (which I too had fallen in love with) so off I went to scour the internet to see what I could find.

One carefully edited google search later...here is what I came up with.  This is artist Jeff Nichol.  I found this image on his site, and immediately figured that he was the artist responsible for the piece in question.  I sent Jeff an email just to let him know that his work was getting rave reviews.  Turns out, it wasn't his.  At least not the one in the post...but, this is where it gets interesting.


Jeff's "Lot C", was a reproduction of the piece in the photo!  He was given the very same photo as the one in the original blog post, by his friend, Kerrie Kelly.  Kerrie is an interior designer, (Kerrie and Jeff both studied Interior Design at the Art Institute of Sacramento). Kerrie saw the same great "Lot C" poster, fell in love with it, and then commissioned Jeff to recreate one.  Which he did, beautifully!  The best part, is that it's now paired up with this purple couch!  Purple with orange, exactly what my original post about the color orange had encouraged.  Crazy!


So, I don't know where the original piece came from...


but if your looking for a great reproduction, check out Jeff's site here.  And, Kerrie Kelly, the designer that loved the same piece, her site is here.

  3. You make a great Sherlock Holmes! Love how you were able to track down a source (but not THE source) for the painting... Perhaps the original artist will come out of hiding once she/he sees this post!

  5. Well done on hearing your readers and delving a little deeper. I am loving this new "must have" and I think customising with your own letter and colour would add personality.

  16. I totally missed that poster in your post, so I'm glad you wrote about it again, because I love it!! I guess the lesson here is, if you can't find the original art (or can't afford it!) try and replicate it yourself!

  31. What an amazing little story - could be titled "something about LOT C". Sometimes you just can't quite pin down the appeal of an object but it strikes a chord with everyone.

  33. Great research my dear! I am very impressed..! x

    I love the poster that Jeff re-created, but must be honest and admit that I have a preference for the original... It looks as if it was created out of metal and I love the rusted areas. Yum!

    Have a great rest of the week!

    xx C

  34. Wow...beautiful! I really love that :)
