My brother and his partner are soon opening a restaurant in Seattle. They have been working hard on all aspects of the restaurant from menu to interior to logo, to even beer and coffee tastings, for almost a year now. In just a couple of weeks we will be able to visit the space, try their food, and hear about their success! They also mentioned that they were having a professional photographer photograph their space soon, so knowing that I want to get photos of my art on-location I asked if they would be interested in displaying a piece of my art on their restaurant wall.
They were open to the idea to so I worked on my first piece designed for a specific space. I looked at traditional wrought iron from New Orleans and Haiti, used design aspects from their logo and interior fabric, and found card stock to match their colors. It was a fun challenge!
I designed 8 different squares with three layers each and then cut, arranged and rearranged them into a 24" square frame. I am so excited about the final outcome and look forward to seeing it hang on the wall of Acadia as soon as it is open and ready for visitors and artwork!
