Description - The Work of Art by Paul Bertelli

The Work of Art investigates the process from concept to creation, featuring the homes themselves and the craftsmen who build them.

Anyone can put paint to canvas. Anyone can move a brush around. Draw a picture. Carve a piece of wood. But put the paintbrush in the hands of a Degas or a Renoir, put the piano keys beneath the fingers of a Debussy or a Brubeck, and suddenly magic happens. Art explodes into the light of day, all breathless and dazzling and daring you to look away. We know this to be true. Because the fields and woods and mountains and prairies are our canvas, wood and iron and steel and stone are our paintbrushes. And what happen when they meet defies imagination. Homes of extraordinary beauty. Enduring expressions of the human heart and hand. The work of masters. The work of art. JLF Design Build is known for their ability to create work that captures the romantic and wild spirits of Western United States (cultural regionalism), built on the principles of old world craftsmanship. These foundations joined with a contemporary design philosophy create the grandeur of place in the outside world as a treasure reflected within a home. 'The Work of Art' exposes and celebrates the PROCESS from concept to creation, featuring distinct imagery of homes and the craftsmen who build them.
