Back in April, Sauce was contacted by the Comiskey group, as the owner had a new project he was working on. Sauce had previously worked for David at one of his childcare centres on the Sunshine Coast, so it was great to continue this partnership.
David had numerous ideas about the designs and imagery for his latest development, the Sandstone Point Hotel. Since the hotel has numerous different bars, eating areas and meeting points, cleverly, David wanted a different focus in each area or zone. David also chose to begin the mural and artwork phase prior to opening, so Sauce was in there, painting amount the construction site. By focusing on each different zone, Sauce was able to design and tailor artwork to suit the usage and the layout of the area. The different zones, also provided Sauce with different artistic opportunities. The images below show the signage, portrait, and ghost-signs. All of which were a welcome challenge.
From the design phase, where the client used Pinterest to indicate the themes and perspective, to the application of the artwork, this is by far, was one of the more intricate, varied and professional artworks Sauce has created. It's not only a portfolio piece, but it also an example of how businesses can use artwork to suit their needs and transform an area, by standing out from all of their competitors. This project was the perfect balance of artwork, patronage and commercial value. Sauce hopes to both work with the Comiskey Group again, and other likeminded clients who want to stand out from the crowd.
As as the weather warms up and the days grow longer, I strongly recommend a trip north of Brisbane to the Sandstone Point Hotel. Baby Boomers will be pleased to know the Beach Boys will be performing there in the near future, and there's even a petting zoo for the little ones. So grab your family, get in the car, and get ready to enjoy a cool drink, tasty food, great artwork and seaside views.
