In June, I completed several art installations for three office buildings. The project was very exciting as each space was a blank canvas allowing me to interpret a response with the artwork. The lobby environment presented a slight challenge due to massive amounts of marble and granite which possessed its own motion/movement. My solution was to keep the subject matter simple (yet large at 52 inches by 52 inches) while incorporating texture and subtle color. Other areas needed a boost of color and I was happy to oblige.
Part of the overall creative process for this installation was the ‘full circle’ nature: several decades ago, I worked in the commercial real estate industry managing office buildings. It was great fun to be back in that environment and working with professionals whose objectives were logical to me.
In addition to nine permanent pieces, I created three paintings to temporarily display in common areas. In two of these, I used a brayer tool to apply some of the paint which created a more geometric effect.
