Soicher Marin to Launch Open Studio with Carrier and Company
(Bradenton, FL) February, 2022 —In their first collaboration, acclaimed interior designers Mara Miller and Jesse Carrier and third-generation art house Soicher Marin present Open Studio, five collections that reflect Carrier and Company’s own sensibility and love of art.
Jesse and Mara reflected on many of the show-stopping and impactful art pieces that they’ve selected for projects throughout the years as inspiration for this first collection with Soicher Marin. The Open Studio collection celebrates the artist at work and the magical transformations that occur when paint meets canvas. Influenced by countless artists past and present, this collection serves as a well-rounded view into the world of all things Carrier and Company.
Jesse states, “Art and the power it brings to an interior – either through content or composition – is a significant and important element in our design process. The simple pleasure of the work and how it crafts an interior has always taken precedence over its provenance. The Open Studio Collection captures the refinement, eclecticism, color, and excitement that inspire our interiors.”Nearly 150 images make up the entire collection in the five categories listed below. Eduardo Marin comments, “I enjoyed a rare opportunity to peek inside the creative process that drives the Carrier and Company team. Mara and Jesse are resolute in what they expect in the work; they articulated clearly what was needed to realize their vision. This level of mutual engagement gave rise to a beautiful, creative flow. I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished together.”

Modernist Collage & Negative Space
Playful compositions in a range of mediums beget a sense of imagination and nostalgia, and we love the pops of color and visual interest that they bring.
Mysterious and familiar at once, these works invite their viewer to contemplate the story behind each figure. Inspired by the work of contemporary artists, these gestural figures capture intimate moments in time.

Quick-handed botanicals and stylized floral paintings capture the beauty and detail of the natural world with an unexpected modern appeal.
Transparency & Color Studies
Overlapping transparency adds depth and dimension to create a light and ethereal mood while the compositions establish a sense of order.
Abstract Color Blocks
Graphic and vibrant, these color block paintings add richness to any room. Perfectly at home in a modern interior, they are also a sophisticated foil when placed in a traditional setting. Let the bold shapes and colors set the tone of the space or use them to enhance as a finishing touch.
