It was fantastic to return to Redland Museum to complete mural number five. This time I was given the challenge of creating a backdrop replicating the inside of a printery workshop. I found plenty of inspiration within the display and after some research I put together a concept. The committee made a few suggestions and a second draft was developed to accommodate the refinements and ensure historical accuracy. As always it was a pleasure to compliment all of the staff and volunteers hard work in the museum.
Installation work is where Sauce is keen to keep pushing the boundaries and experimenting with. For this work, he used aerosol on a composite board, creating a three dimensional effect to contrast with the natural landscape.Read More
I was recently contacted by the principal at Ipswich West State School a primary school west of Brisbane, to create artwork for the tuck shop. Built in 1861, the school has plenty of architectural character and is heritage listed however the addition of the new box style tuck shop looked out of place amongst the red brick, corrugated iron and wood features of the adjacent buildings. The tuck shop had been referred to as "The Toilet Block" by some stakeholders as its aesthetics were less than inspiring.
The brief was to make the tuck shop blend in with the surroundings and bring continuity by creating an illusion mural. I came across many challenges during designing and applying the mural however the transformation has impressed and engaged staff and students alike. It has been a joy to work amongst a professional and friendly school community.
