I was contacted by an art consultant who was looking for a piece for the company Eastman Kodak in Kingsport, TN. I was given the size of the wall and asked to create a piece from my Wind & Water series. This installation consists of a grid of 6" x 6" square and 6" x 14" rectangular wall-mounted pieces.
Because the premise of this piece was a direct purchase, there was only the color scheme which was needed to integrate the piece into the overall space. The client wanted a focus on reds, yellows, and purples. I was given free reign on the design of the installation with minimal specifications other than size and color.
This was a minimal collaboration as it was a direct purchase order.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
