Exhibition: Real Simple Idea Home: Thumbnail
Laura Naples

We teamed up with designers Kate Gray of Hamilton Gray Studio and Rebecca Atwood to outfit a dreamy bedroom in Real Simple's annual Idea Home with original artworks by Christina Watka, Laura Naples, and Cindy Hsu Zell.



  • Christina WatkaPortland, ME

    Christina Watka (b. 1986) is a site-specific, large-scale installation artist. Informed by large systems in nature, such as the movement of herds and flocks, Christina uses natural materials and ceramic to translate these systems into inviting and contemplative artwork. In her most recent series, 'The Lightness of Joy', Watka creates hanging brass and mica sculptures which hypnotically reflect light in a kinetic and meditative display. Christina received her BFA in Studio Art in 2008 from The New England School of Art and Design at Suffolk University.

  • Laura NaplesCleveland, OH

    Laura Naples (b. 1979) is a painter based in Cleveland, Ohio. Her gestural works in thin acrylic washes probe the space between chaos and control. Laura’s selective application of color offers further investigation in opposition, examining dark and light, spectral tone and monochrome.
