Close up… now closer, closer still, until the object you’re seeing comes loose from its context and gets all weird and sacramental, a fetish, a meditation.

For a good many fashion collectors, the addition of a fur is something of a pinnacle—a moment where a luxury item has the rare power to transform an entire outfit from standard issue into unforgettably cinematic. But whether she opts for the sultriness of a ‘60s-era Sophia Loren (jet-black mink) or the chilly understatement of Margot Tenenbaum (honey-blond mink), chances are that, in her pursuit of the perfect piece, she’ll make her way to the New York–based fur designer and manufacturer Pologeorgis, one of the largest in North America. Founded by Stanley Pologeorgis in 1960, the company has historically been known for its unmatched craftsmanship and innovative collaborations with the who’s-who of the fashion world, among them Pierre Balmain, who designed Pologeorgis’s first landmark collection in 1970.

Even the human figures in Domenico Gnoli’s paintings loom so near the beholder that they become  unreal and mesmerisingly textured. His beds, buttons and a brick wall are given equal attention and depth, Gnoli’s soothing craftsmanship verging on muzak, except he wasn’t joking.

His gaze is deliberate, even reverent: at once eroticising and abstracting everyday commodities, this is an art with nothing uncanny about it.

Featured in Issue No. 4 Falling
How much richer for writers and artists – Titian, Albert Camus, Alicia Keys – is the idea of falling than its Thatcherite counterpart, rising? Even the fear of falling is delicious, as you wonder how you ever lost control, what is this feeling, and where will it end?
