A Challenge of Grand Scale

Associate Mason Wood worked with a DC law firm to find artwork for their reception area. The challenges: the partners had differing opinions about the style of artwork (some wanted abstract, while other asked for more representational imagery) and the space had bold, built-in moulding that commanded the reception area. At first Mason proposed conventional framed or mixed media pieces to go on the wall, but then came to the realization that using the moulding as a "frame" for the artwork would be very dramatic. This is the final result, a grand floor-to-ceiling depiction of DC, yet abstract and colorful enough to satisfy those who didn't want something too literal.
