If you've been to the Skylark, chances are you've noticed the eclectic collection of artwork on the walls, in giant coffee table books, and on the terrace
. We especially love featuring local artists, like Chris Schoonover, a photographer who became known for his prism portraits during NYFW, and whose work has since featured by NYLON, Jose Cuervo, J. Crew, and Calvin Klein, to name a few. Check out more of his work here
and come see "Poker Hand" and its neighbors adorning our walls.

"Poker Hand" is actually the product of a camera test earlier this year made from objects lying around the house.
"I started with photographing objects and scenes, but I noticed when I took a photo of a person it added another dimension to the photograph. Phillip Lorca Dicorcia’s “Hustlers" project really had a big impact on me. I started trying to photograph people on the street, but then I found I wanted more control on location, wardrobe, etc. So I started to shoot with models and everything clicked -- there is something about people.
