Specific hosted six exhibitions last year, beginning last spring with the industrial chic lamps of Brooklyn architects Workstead, and wire sculptures and rubber-stamp art by L.A. artist Jamison Carter. “We had 10 of Workstead’s wall lamps and a huge 6-arm, 84-inch drop version of their 3-arm chandelier, and it all sold, which was kind of amazing,” Thomas says. “Jamison Carter did this huge wire sculpture on the wall that also sold to a guy in New York. The stamp he installed directly onto the shop wall didn’t sell, though, and we ended up painting over it.”
