A permanent lantern installation at the QT Hotels Gowings Restaurant in Sydney. A contemporary reworking of Classic Masters floral still lives, collided with hand applied gold leaf, graffiti and photo montage.
The commission involved working the QT design team to create a series of gorgeous original textile designs for an overhead lantern installation in their Gowings Restaurant. These textile designs were also used in soft furnishing and wardrobe accessories.

Originally, Gowings was an 1800s drapery and millinery department store. The artwork draws its inspiration form flowing skirt forms, a series of suspended crinolines.
Textile art printed on recycled PET polyester. Manufactured using 100% renewable electricity (Solar). All polyester waste re-recycled onshore by Sealy.
There is opportunity to redevelop this work using, and expanding upon the existing construction techniques.
