“The Corniche”, mixed media on canvas, 33.5×60 inches – Photography Martin Tessler

I had the pleasure of working with Vancouver’s Insight Design Group on a residential interior art commission. This painting was created for Mosaic Homes’ Cambria Park development on Vancouver’s westside. It was on view at the model home at Cambie and 41st Avenue until the development sold out. Measuring 33.5 x 60 inches, the generous canvas size gave me lots of space to explore the gorgeous colours in the interior design palette.

Design Process

To create the artwork, I started with a base of organic shapes from photographs I had taken of interesting local rock formations and foliage. Working with the palette chosen by the designers, I created this painting to their colour specifications. The glazed surface has layer upon layer of semi-transparent colour. Bold brushwork in the lower half of the painting brought a lot of energy to the piece and really added to the strength of the composition.

I was delighted to learn that one of the new owners of a sub-penthouse in the development acquired the piece for their own home.
