A Beautiful Collision: Art meets Design at the Zenith Showroom

There are a lot of similarities between the worlds of art and design. Distill each down, strip away the trimmings, the jargon and preconceived notions, and you get to an idea. Before any artwork, design object, or building can exist in the physical realm, it takes an individual person to dare to imagine. What if... 

Each of the artworks in this collection are the artists expressions of very big concepts: what are we doing to our environment, and how can we shift to living more sustainably? As individuals, how can we probe more deeply into the human condition and find our place in the matrix of the universe? What does politics and leadership mean in a post modern society where patriarchy and gender stereotypes are thankfully becoming things of the past? Is there a way to harness naturally occurring elements in a way that is unexpected and playful which also stimulates our thoughts about what art can be? 

You can view these works here, online, or come visit the Zenith Showroom in Parnell to see the way that each artwork comes to life and expand their potential meanings when placed in conversation with interior and spatial design constructs.
