NA­TURE’S ART IN FO­CUS

NA­TURE’S BEAUTY IN­SPIR­ING

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - LIFESTYLE - Janita Singh De­tails: urbanroad.com.au

ART can cre­ate a mood and change the look of any in­te­rior, celebrity in­te­rior de­signer and tele­vi­sion per­son­al­ity Shaynna Blaze says.

Blaze has teamed up with art hub Ur­ban Road to launch her first art col­lec­tion.

It is inspired by the beauty and colours of na­ture in what she de­scribes as its most ex­treme forms.

Blaze says the part­ner­ship was her chance to re­lieve the frus­tra­tion of not phys­i­cally cre­at­ing her own art range but help­ing di­rect and cre­ate the look and feel with the help of artist and cre­ative di­rec­tor/founder of Ur­ban Road, Suzie Atkin.

“Suzie has a great eye and energy and I knew as soon as we met we could cre­ate some­thing won­der­ful to­gether,’’ Blaze says.

“This was a col­lab­o­ra­tion pro­ject with my­self driv­ing the con­cept, sub­ject and colour pal­ette and Suzie be­ing the tal­ent be­hind the brush.”

The col­lec­tion is all about colours and mood, she says.

“It’s about be­ing taken on a jour­ney of na­ture at its finest, with or­ganic and ab­stract forms, and a sense of fluid, el­e­gant move­ment,” Blaze says.

“It em­braces a di­verse pal­ette, from whim­si­cal fem­i­nine to moody and mys­te­ri­ous to com­ple­ment any space.”

Blaze took in­spi­ra­tion from stormy skies and seascapes as well as zon­ing in on the minute de­tails of a but­ter­fly’s wing. The art­works are cre­ated in wa­ter­colour and acrylics and printed on can­vas and pa­per.

The can­vas can be framed with a shadow frame and the prints are framed with ei­ther tim­ber, brass, white or black.

Papil­lion is based on the mi­cro scales of a but­ter­fly’s wing, Tran­scend is moody ocean and sky scapes and Chi­nois­erie and Fleet­ing Mo­ments are sup­port­ing pieces. “They add colour to the walls but al­low you to have more than one piece in the room with­out tak­ing over an in­te­rior,’’ Blaze says of the lat­ter two.
