We recently chose one of Fabian Oefner’s disintegrating car images for a special client’s new auto gallery (designed by Blue Lantern Studios). The image will be customized to match the bright Mexico Blue of the owner’s personal Audi R8 which will be stored (among other vehicles) in the new space. The alteration of the original color not only makes this image exclusive to the client but it functions as an essential design element to tie the space together. This project goes to show that any room can be enhanced by the addition of artwork. Oefner’s dynamic, detailed and illusionistic image brings personalization and beauty to a space that is designed to be so much more than just a garage.
Presentation of process by Pamela Viola...
Washington DC based mixed-media artist/photographer Pamela Viola has the expert ability to elevate the mundane to the sublime. This short video, which gives a glimpse into her digital process, is based on a basic photo of a house. By paring the image down to its intrinsic shape and form, she transcends the original with a series of images reminding us of a terrain we may have only walked in our dreams.
With a background in photography, her “aha!” moment came when she realized that she could make “something from nothing.” That any uninspired shot could become a thing of beauty. We have enjoyed watching her artwork develop since this pivotal shift in her thinking, and her abilities continue to expand and adapt alongside new technologies and experimentation.
Pamela is an artist we love to work with. Her vision can align with any given project. Her sense of design and color always culminate in perfection.
APP // SAN FRANCISCO
The recent re-branding of Pier 2620 Hotel was featured by Hospitality Design Magazine this week. Amy Parry Projects was selected by the Designers at Anderson/Miller, Ltd. to carry their Fisherman's Wharf concept through in the art for 233 guestrooms. Start to finish, we thrive on creating these one-of-a-kind art packages.
Please check out our photos of the evolution of these custom, hand-painted (and weathered) signs after you read the article about the project.
