{Francine Turk in The Break Up}

The “Break Up” was on television the other night, and it is one of my favorite flicks not only because it is set in my beloved city of Chicago (I am partial to anything set in the Windy City) but also for its prominent exhibition of artwork by my friend, Francine Turk. Remember the lovely sketches all throughout the apartment in the Break Up, supposedly drawn by Jennifer Aniston’s character, Brooke?  Well, they are actually by Turk, a Chicago based artist.  Francine’s work is also featured in the new Vince Vaughn movie The Dilemma. I have been a big fan of Francine for quite some time, and when I opened my showroom last year I naturally had to feature her work.

Her work is not only beautiful, but it is versatile as well.  From placing a large collection on a living room wall to hanging one or two in a powder room, Francine Turk’s work certainly is nothing with which to “break up.”

Turk’s official website is under construction, so the following images courtesy of “So Haute.”  Also, check out the tour of her fabulous Chicago townhouse!

This is an awesome post. Turk’s art is sort of like high fashion silhouettes meet art. I love the way that she does legs and backs as well. Amazing! For chicago movies though, Shall We Dance is probably my favorite. =0)

I loved this story! Amazing artwork as well – very much our taste. I added a little note about how to work through “design by couple” that we work through everyday on our companies blog.

I am so proud and thrilled to have had this amazing exhibit in my showroom!
Not to mention the pieces that have been installed in my client’s homes.
A “win-win!”
