Tracking down this iconic image of Bridget Bardot from the 60s was a challenge, but Studio Art Direct finally found Terry O’Neill in London and licensed the image for this 10’x15′ glass panel installation which floats in the lobby. Beautiful and a bit naughty.
Studio Art Direct commissioned Australian artist Loui Jover to create “Adventures in Bliss”. The artwork includes words and symbols about Portland. As directed, Jover painted at 1/6th the full size (10’x15′). First a high res scan of the original was done in segments, then scans were stitched together to create an extraordinarily large digital file for production. We then printed image on glass with frit ink. This panel was laminated to another glass panel so that the image is sandwiched in between and is about 1/2″ thick. We worked closely with Holst Architecture for this art in architecture application.

Lobby Hotel Eastlund. Briget Bardot floats on glass in the lobby. The installation (10’x15′) was created by tracking down photographer Terry O’Neill in London, licensing the image, resing up the photograph in large scale, and printing with frit ink on glass, then laminating to another piece of glass so that the image is protected an tempered.
Large scale glass floats between the lobby and the guest office/conference room. Janelle Baglien commissioned artist Loui Jover of Australia to create a custom painting with words and images about Portland set against the winsome eyes of a woman. Jover was directed by Baglien in composition, size and palette.
