Take A Seat!
Wallpaper is a versatile medium with which I - as a professional installer - interpret a customized statement with sensitivity to the decorated surface and the needs of its users.
As with selecting wallpaper for a room, the form of the chair told me it wanted pattern. My challenge was the chair’s Modern influenced style with the cut-out. It needed to remain the focal point of the art piece, maintaining the integrity of the original design.
Although Bradbury & Bradbury Art Wallpaper company's library is extensive, my artistic intuition saw the Victory Frieze as the pattern with a design spirit compatible with the chair.
Coordinated borders and enrichments from The Dresser Tradition enable the inherent curves of the chair to be embellished with flat paper.
The technique is similar to that of a Victorian inlaid ceiling, which is the more typical installation of Bradbury.com papers by Heidi L. Johnson.
40 local artists and designers creatively paint, decorate, cut, drill, and embellish 40 chairs. The exhibition culminates in a fundraising party and silent auction of the chairs on February 28, 2016. Exhibition runs January 27 – February 28, 2016
