Studio Job’s contribution is that we have rediscovered a lost path. Consciously and carefully, we are positioning decorative arts in the twenty-first century.

Employing iconographic, pan-historic imagery, which can be in the same moment both heraldic as well as cartoon-like, the results are consistently monumental and yet somehow primitive, and generally read neo-baroque, clearly fantasist, and certainly more mannerist than modernist.

Their work often projects a strong narrative quality, with often suggests a heroic battle between good and evil, and their gorgeous collections seem to emerge from a medieval, guild-like process with an industrial approach.

Although their work is geared towards collectors and museums by definition, Studio Job has collaborated successfully with various like-minded industrial manufacterers, including Swarovski in Austria, and Koninklijke Tichelaar Makkum and Moooi in the Netherlands.

 

Their work has been shown internationally in numerous museums, including New York’s Museum of Modern Art, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and the Dutch Textile Museum in Tilburg; along with exhibiting at Carpenters Workshop Gallery.
