We recently delivered and installed at our clients home their newly completed commissioned artwork.
Chosen from an exemplary selection of artists, this commission was awarded to local artist Peter Dailey.
The client’s recent purchase and furnish of their City Beach home required finishing off with significant artworks. A focal point for their entrance foyer was required to reflect a warm and welcoming environment.
The artwork needed to compliment the design of the home and its surrounding environment.
The commissioned artist, Peter Dailey designed his sculpture based on a theme of nurture, growth, and creativity. The sculpture, in the design of a woman, has rested in her hands a large bird, perched on the beak of this bird is a smaller bird, singing – with tunes protruding from its beak. Her headpiece is a series of painted houses.
