Meet the Collector of One ‘Chill’ Item

InLiquid believes that everyone–no matter their location, career, style, or background–can and should be a collector. To show that, we asked people what they collect and why. With incredible feedback, we found out there’s nothing you can’t collect!

Today we meet a collector of wits, Sam Seifman. He shares with us one particular artwork from his collection that he likes the most: a painting of Bill Murray–chilled. And really, there’s no better way to describe the actor/comedian we’ve loved since Caddy Shack.

Tell us everything about this collection! What attracted you to this? What do you like most about it? Which one is your favorite?

I honestly started as I became an adult and had an apartment space to fill. I didn’t know I had any interest in collecting anything until I had empty walls, empty dressers, and empty counter space. I like having seemingly unimportant pieces that represent generally superficial parts about me.

Chill Murray by Jon and David Swartz of Black Ink Art

Together, they help paint a larger picture of who I am and it becomes more meaningful. I have this painting of frozen Bill Murray called Chill Murray; that is my favorite.

When did you start your collection? 

Probably 2014. At the time, I felt I was a weird person and would rather show it than tell.

What else do you enjoy collecting? 

Different currencies.

What inspires you most about having your collection in your home? 

I don’t find it particularly inspiring, haha, I just enjoy having it!

Share your Collection!

What elevates his work from mere craftsmanship is his visionary outlook. Rearranging objects and incorporating an iconography of myths, fairy tales, and personal idiosyncrasies, Warren Muller exudes an envious agility.  Motion, change and improvisation are implied like a glimpse of chaos captured and frozen for a split-second.
