How immigrants can tell their story and fix their space with Australian artwork theming.
The brief: Rod and Leanne own a cleaning company and were busy, hard-working folk. They had immigrated from the UK when their children were small, hoping to escape family to enjoy the hot weather, rich rainforests, rugged terrains and vast spaces of Australia. With a new kitchen installed, they loved the idea of original Australian made art that would also fix and inspire their open-plan space. Moreover, they loved the idea of telling their story with Australian artwork theming to create meaningful heirlooms for their kids.
Our strategy: Having chosen a frame from artist and decorator Sharron Tancred’s select range, a Free Flow style, in earthy colours was carefully measured and later custom made to wrap around their walls. This creates a shared horizon and creates a themed vista. However, this commission was more about Rod and Leanne’s story- without being too literal. Commissioning original Australian made art with Australian artwork theming too is perfect for this! Shapes representing adults, children, Ayers Rock, sea, lakes, shorelines, earth, rain and clouds express the families leaving the rain for the sun in the large right panel. Then, the evolution of grandchildren within the central art panel followed by their retirement in the left panel! Very cool – a life story!
The results: Sharron gave numerous décor tips to Leanne and Rod to help them improve their decor and selected a few decorative items for the presentation process to demonstrate how easy Australian art theming made their decorating.
