Pomeroy House

Pomeroy House, Planet Elephants

In the early 90’s I began my art career in Toronto by hanging my works at cafe’s, pubs & coffee shops. These were temporary exhibits with prices and titles marked on small paper tags beside each work. It is humbling and gratifying that five top Ottawa eateries have committed to purchasing my work on a permanent basis. The Pomeroy House is one of these great restaurants. The challenge here was their long and narrow space. A painting above the seating would have been difficult to view in its entirety and so I proposed a parade of small 3D clay elephants to animate the space. The pattern and repetition harmonize with the seating fabric and the colour provides a natural transition between the seating and the wall.
