Tyson's Corner Lobby Commission

LATELA was hired to commission two 7ft by 4ft paintings for the lobby of a corporate building in Tyson's Corner, VA.

  'Ascend' by Christine Olmstead

The inspiration behind the first painting began with a prior piece by artist Christine Olmstead. The commissioned painting was to reveal a much lesser ratio of peach colors to match the interior and compliment the rich receptionist desk.

The second painting was inspired by a digitally manipulated image and the commissioned painting was to present a marriage between the inspiration image and the mock up with a shift towards bronze rather than gold. Gold flake and various shades of bronze were to be sprinkled throughout the upper bronze body of the work. The separation between the white and bronze fields was to have an improvised effect rather than a blurred straight line.
