This poster was printed on the occasion of Picture Room’s Featured Artist show with Allison Samuels in the Spring of 2019. The Picture Room graphic identity, designed by Benjamin Critton, nods to the rectangle as the historic mode of art-making, using classical proportions to enact various iterations of the Golden Ratio.
Allison Samuels (b. 1990) is the founder of Two Tree Studios, an environmentally conscious design practice and woodworking studio based in Brooklyn, NY. Through an upbringing surrounded by forests, rivers and mountains, Samuels cultivated an early appreciation for the natural world. As such, her work emphasizes, and is dictated in part by, the unique properties she observes within raw material itself.
Benjamin Critton, b. 1983, is an American artist and graphic designer. He is a graduate of the Yale School of Art, and lives and works in Los Angeles, California.
