Oil, Varnish, Pigments and Graphite on Drywall, 10 feet × 32 feet
The wall painting Magenta to Green relates to the architecture of a curved wall and with that to the movement and circulation in the building. Layers of rolled on red, yellow and blue varnish build a site-specific color-space compostion in tension with black and grey line work. The painting, with its abstracted features of landscape, located at the lobby of a chemistry lab, relates to their sustainable line of products cleaning heavy metals out water.
The goal for the project was to develop a welcoming art piece in the lobby to represent the company's mission and resolve way finding issues.
Collaboration on preliminary design sketches regarding layout and color scheme with the client.

[ 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.
