Our client emphasized the importance of working with a local artist to design a bold feature piece for their conference room.
With the idea of dimensional and colorful statement art in mind, the goal for the commission was to spark creativity and collaboration among those who enter the space. The team commissioned Saint Louis artist Carrie Gillen for her eclectic style and unique approach to fabric artworks.
Gillen strategically bent metal wires to build a custom armature, or interior framework, to create the piece. She then stretched fabric atop the armature, twisting it to create crisp ridges while adding dimension and movement. She applied layers of paint, contrasting pastels with darker, cool-toned hues to complement the existing interior while bringing energy to the space.
