Rowena Martinich is a Surfcoast based artist, renowned for her use of radiant colour in abstract expressionist paintings and public art. Rowena paints in a multitude of architectural contexts; embellishing foyers, commercial interiors, entire building facades, transitory spaces as well as residential interiors.
This Darling Point home was awarded ‘NSW House of the Year’ in 2011. The owner had a keen eye for art and design with exemplary works throughout the space. The artist was commissioned to create site-specific works for two windows that are in prominent positions, one on the facade facing the street and the other beside the front door, playing a substantial role in creating an impression to visitors. The interior square window is partially screened to offer some privacy, to frame the courtyard space as well as add interest to the interior space.
