HENZEL STUDIO HERITAGE: TOM OF FINLAND, marks the debut of an ongoing collection of art rugs and pillows created in close collaboration with foundations and estates of some of the most prominent and influential artists of the 20th century. Tom of Finland (Touko Laaksonen, Finnish. 1920 – 1991) is widely regarded as one of the 20th century’s most influential artists for his revolutionary representation of the male figure. His drawings of fantastically muscled men engrossed in acts of homoerotic desire comprise one of the most inventive portrayals of the human body in modern times. Over a career that spanned nearly fifty years, he produced thousands of images beginning in the 1940s, robbing straight homophobic culture of its most virile and masculine archetypes; bikers, hoodlums, lumberjacks, cops, cowboys, and sailors, and recasting them – through deft skill and fantastic imagination – unapologetic, self-aware, and boastfully proud enthusiasts of gay sex. The integration of Tom of Finland’s work into the media at hand – hand made rugs and pillows – was ignited by the unique environment and interior elements that make TOM House. Located in Echo Park, Los Angeles, it is home of Tom of Finland Foundation, guardians of the artist’s body of work and living archive for the erotic arts, and where Tom permanently lived for the last decade of his life. Works by Tom of Finland are part of the collections of leading institutions that include Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles and the Museum of Modern Art in New York. He has been referred to as one of the “five most influential artists of thetwentieth century.” Untitled Design: Tom of Finland Henzel Studio Heritage Hand tufted, Wool Custom size available upon request
