This artwork was a private commission for a stunning home in Sydney. The client commissioned me to create an artwork in response to the stairwell. The artwork depicts two figures suspended from the ceiling and wall that reach out to each other, forming a bridge between the space. Conceptually the artwork speaks of two individuals navigating a complicated environment in an attempt to stay connected. Created from timber and paint.
I presented a series of drawings that portrayed the two figures in a variety of compositions. The client went through the designs and asked for a composition that integrated two of the proposed designs. From this point onwards I created the figures in sections like a puzzle and assembled them with an experienced install team during the installation of the artwork on site.

[ 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.
