Kaleidoscope Naras. One of Brisbane’s largest framed artworks!
>> The Brief: Leah Harford, Interior Designer at Art Land Indooroopilly, referred Sharron to her clients Manju and Raveen to design what she thought could be one of Brisbane’s largest framed artworks for their Fig Tree Pocket home’s four-storey stairwell. This job takes home decor artwork to a whole new level.
>> Our strategy: A series of 8 canvases created a New York window-scape depicted as a series of horizontal layers of the garden, buildings and sky where collage elements could be seen within or reflected. Specially sourced items were meticulously hand-cut to fit the design: Frank Sinatra music scores, Broadway posters; Raveen’s medical journals; Manju’s Swarovski crystal sari fabric, rearranged into a daisy design; Manju’s jewellery placed to flow horizontally; all items fading in and out of vision. Finally, the eight canvases were Glass Coated for a stunning result to match the amazing $11,000 highly polished, curved; timber laminated moulded and hand-finished Bellini frame, sourced from Italy by Art Land Indooroopilly. Home decor artwork made with pizzazz!
>> The results: “When I first visited the client’s home for a consultation to determine a solution for framed artwork for their entry, I knew we needed to create something incredible to suit the space’s scale. Immediately, it was apparent that this called for a customised piece of artwork. The challenge was then to find an artist we could entrust to create something that would give the owners great pleasure, be a reflection of their tastes and do justice to their beautiful home.’
“I am so glad that we found you Sharron because you far surpassed my hopes for what the process or the final result could be. I want to commend you on your professionalism, organisation, passion and commitment to this project. From the very first meeting with you and the client, I could feel the combined excitement and dedication to making this artwork something really special. You have the ability to tune into the client’s likes and desires due to your preparation of relevant questions, visual examples and detailed explanations. Above all, it was your ability to listen, interpret and have spontaneous creative visualisation and sketch ideas that allowed you to translate ideas into a cohesive framework. Every aspect and stage of the project was expertly managed and fully detailed with excellent visual updates for feedback. The results speak for themselves and what you created was a beautiful artwork.
The appreciation showed to you as the artist, and the Art Land team involved in framing the artwork was incredible. It was a great honour that we were all invited back into the Naras home for a celebration evening to see the artwork hanging in place. We were indeed fortunate to work with such amazing clients. I will continue to suggest your services to our clients and have every confidence that you will be dedicated to achieving outstanding, personal and meaningful results. Sincere Thanks, Leah Harford, Senior Design Consultant, Art Land”
