This project was commissioned by Art Consulting Services for Eskaton Village Retirement Community in Roseville, CA. It is comprised of a series of 5 wood panels, each 27″ x 36.” I used mixed media on acid washed brass.
Eskaton village sits on 80 acres of open land with its own fruit orchards. There was a desire to include this subject matter to reinforce a sense of place and significance. There were also considerations to the architectural pallet, which was inspired by Early Spanish adobe and Terracotta construction. I used fruit blossoms as the theme and the rustic feel of patina-ed brass.
I worked closely with ACS to effectively understand the concerns and desires of the client in bringing this project to a successful completion.
I worked directly from blossoms, leaves and branches in capturing the imagery and translating through various mediums.
