ERYN ORUNCAK
FINE ART COMMISSIONS  FOR  DESIGNERS

The fine art of Eryn Oruncak combines seamlessly with the conversation of the furnishings, fabrics, and architecture of a space.  An interior designer herself, Eryn gives a unique, and oftentimes instinctual perspective on the use of color, texture, movement and details. 

 

 The process of each collaboration with her clients and fellow interior designers on custom art commissions brings its own rewards as she channels the energy of not only the elements in the room, but also the people for whom she creates.   Designers call on Eryn to translate onto a canvas the dialogue of layers they've created in their luxury spaces .

There was an instant connection between Eryn Oruncak and Keia McSwain when the designers met. For the lounge dedicated to the Black Interior Designers Network in the Caracole showroom for High Point Market Fall 2022, Keia collaborated with Eryn on a private art commission for her design. Eryn created a second painting during the process, "Queen". A diptych called "City Night" was added to round out the collection of Eryn's artwork showcased in the space.

As an interior designer herself, Eryn is a firm believer in the importance of original fine art in one’s environment and has the ability to channel the energy of the room as well as that of her clients. A core value of her design firm, Elan Design, is promoting pleasant conversation among the furnishings, fabrics, and artwork.

 

For this Designers' Lounge, Eryn was mindful that Caracole, Ngala Trading, Thibaut, and Keia are all represented well in this collection of artwork.

Eryn used two innovative ideas on the final layers of "Spirits".  She incorporated the Thibaut wallpaper to ensure a comfortable dialogue between the artwork and the room itself.  Second, the gold necklace affixed to the abstract Nekia Chandelier on the painting nods to Keia and Eryn's shared love of gold jewelry, and takes the idea of artwork being the jewelry in the space to a new level.

In this occasion, not only was Eryn able to reference the beautiful components in the room using Keia’s flat lay and color palette, the two creatives were energetically connected while the painting was taking shape. As Eryn was creating the piece in her studio outside of Washington DC, Keia was in South Africa for a business trip. Without communicating with each other, Eryn was translating the objects that were inspiring Keia in South Africa onto the canvas in real time.

The below video shows behind the scenes footage of the artist painting this piece.

As the concept of "Spirits" was still developing, Eryn was inspired to create "Queen", completely tapped into the energy of Keia exploring South Africa at the time. Eryn translated the elegance, strength and beauty of an African queen, and reflected that elan onto this smaller canvas.

To marry "Spirits" with "Queen", Eryn affixed the same gold jewelry to each piece, bringing the idea of artwork as jewelry in the room to a new level.

Eryn created "City Night" during the pandemic in homage to New York City. Having spent many nights among its beautiful buildings, she reflected on the rich energy one feels in Manhattan. "City Night" evokes this sense of glamour and opulence in every paint stroke.
