Art Eye was approached by the 5-star Retallack Resort's owners, to create an art scheme for their restaurant refurbishment project 'The Green Room'. The brief was to create an up-scale, exciting space, with engaging artwork.
After early chats with the design team, and seeing the retro style to the wallpaper and surroundings plannned, we researched artists whose styles may suit the space, then putting forward our ideas in some to the owners for visual review (see below). They agreed to our first suggestion of a scheme of prints by artist Clare Halifax. If you take a close look at Clare's prints (see our Online Store), you'll notice that gorgeous 'retro' patterns run though and behind her illustrations, which have been inspired by places around Cornwall - including Jubilee Pool, Penzance, and Porthmeor Beach, St Ives.
We're so proud of the results, as shown here in these fab photos. And, since this project, we've continued to work with Clare on bespoke commissions for private collectors and supplying prints to hotels, holiday homes and luxury rental properties. Her work has become highly sought-after across the UK - you'll even see one of Clare's bespoke wall frieze designs in London's Heathrow airport.
Please contact us if you have any ideas for a commission, or would like to see more examples of Clare's bespoke work.
