Poetry of Existence – Dennis Severs House

Dennis Severs House, London

I’ve been asked what inspires me as an artist. I like celebrating beauty that is intermingled with the unusual. Here is an example: The Dennis Severs¬†House in London.

The house’s motto is “You either see it or you don’t.”

I admire examples of making everyday life a work of art. Simply existing from day to day was poetical for Severs. His mix of modern and old and not adhering to one particular time period is refreshing, inviting, and imaginative.
