BRISBANE DEVELOPMENT ALIGNS WITH WORLD-RENOWNED ARTIST

A BRISBANE developer has appointed an internationally-renowned artist to drive the creative direction of its new project.

Sam Chirnside (pictured) has created a series of artworks for Brookfield Residential Properties' $144 million Gallery House at Hamilton.

His artworks have been exhibited in St Martins Lane in London, Hamburg in Germany and New York City, along with various displays in Australia, including the 'Frequencies' exhibition in Melbourne earlier this year.

The artist has also produced designs for Nike, Red Bull, Converse, Sony and Lululemon.

Chirnside says the three pieces, Sky, River and City, represent the different apartments being offered in the project.

"Gallery House is quite different from the fields I usually work in and I've always liked to push my art in new directions and present myself in new ways, whether that is through a new medium or a different field," says Chirnside.

"For the abstract series of works, I was originally inspired by topographical aerial views of land formations that have been shaped over time and the fluid movements seen in these pieces can be referenced to nature and the very essence of life itself.

"Incorporating art into properties is a natural extension and complement to the existing design and infrastructure that is part of any development project.

"It adds an extra element and a fresh perspective."

The three collections offer varying levels of luxury, with the 'Sky Collection' including premium three bedroom-plus apartments and luxurious penthouses with superior fittings and finishes positioned across the top five levels of the building; the 'River Collection' boasting two and three bedroom apartments with river views; and the 'City Collection' featuring one and two bedroom apartments with urban views.

Brookfield Residential Properties general manager Lee Butterworth says the artist-in-residence complements the 20-level project's location, lifestyle and design.

"Our vision for Gallery House is to create a vibrant and iconic destination, and to have an artist who has been aligned with so many highly respected international brands involved is just phenomenal," Butterworth says.

"Sam has really captured the essence of Gallery House, which we have carefully designed to maximise its position encapsulating Brisbane's most iconic assets - the city skyline, the river and the mountains."
