Project Consultants Public Art

Within the 16 years of my public art practice, I have completed 21 public artworks from concept design to installation within Australia. A large aspect of each public artwork has been the collaboration with various project management individuals and groups as well as Public Art Advisory Groups, representatives from local and state governments and people from private project management. While I have listed the individuals and management groups below, (from the most recent artworks backwards in time) I cannot convey the extraordinary wealth of expertise each of those relationships has contributed to the success of the projects.

Public Art is a complex area of art due to the regulatory requirement of art placed in the public domain. The public art process demands accountability to ensure the safety of the general public.

Through the course of my public art experiences I have developed steadfast professional relationships with fabricators and installers in several mediums including digital art glass, wood, stainless steel, aluminium and through various new processes such as those developed using ‘Pic Perf’ and printing on Vitrapanel.
