Galerie Magazine features Katie Stout and Johnny Swing in their "Creative Minds Issue"
"Katie Stout’s intentionally naïve, kitschy-pop style is an explosion of exuberance. Seven years out of the Rhode Island School of Design, where she studied furniture design, the young Brooklyn-based talent has been creating a stir with her distinctive, playful works that belie their subversive agenda, like her coveted series of ceramic 'Shady Ladies' lamps."
"They say money is the root of all evil, but for Johnny Swing, it’s the centerpiece of the striking furniture he creates by attaching thousands of welded nickels and other coins onto patinated-metal frames. Thanks to his masterful craftsmanship, the sensuous organic forms appear to fl oat weightlessly—and are surprisingly comfortable to sit in."
