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.
The Barton Street project is a large permanent bespoke work that was created specifically for this spectacular private dwelling, designed by Tamara Dunkley of ADDARC. The artwork was painted in reverse and installed onto large glass panels that were then installed individually to create an 8.5 metre long artwork. The artwork spans from the interior kitchen space to the exterior courtyard. The luminous palette visually activates the entire space, and part of this work can be seen from the street.
