Artist Denise Yaghmourian Creates Experimental Patterning in Former Upholstery Warehouse in Phoenix

When artists Denise Yaghmourian and Jeff Bertoncino found an upholstery warehouse on Seventh and Camelback streets in Phoenix that was up for sale, they saw its potential as an artistic haven for the whole family.

Yaghmourian describes the studio as her favorite place to be. The frame of the space is orderly and clear with crisp white walls and a smooth stone floor. In the front entrance gallery, fibrous forms hang from the ceiling, resembling dripping textured tears. Some closely hug the ceiling while others hover over the floor.
