CLIENT

Wes­farm­ers lim­it­ed hous­es the pre­em­i­nent cor­po­rate col­lec­tions of Aus­tralian Art and reflects the vision of suc­ces­sive Wes­farm­ers Man­ag­ing Direc­tors in devel­op­ing, sup­port­ing, and shar­ing such a major artis­tic resource with the wider com­mu­ni­ty.


BRIEF

The Lumi­nous World exhi­bi­tion brings togeth­er over 50 dif­fer­ent artists’ con­tem­po­rary works from the Wes­farm­ers Col­lec­tion of Aus­tralian Art in a con­ver­sa­tion about light or the absence of. There were many ref­er­ences to celes­tial bod­ies with­in the exhibition—the chal­lenge was to rep­re­sent the ephemer­al qual­i­ty of light and bring the eclec­tic exhi­bi­tion togeth­er as a coher­ent whole with­out over­pow­er­ing the art­work.


APPROACH

A typo­graph­ic solu­tion was devel­oped using the con­cept of stars sparkling in the sky, as this best rep­re­sent­ed light and dark simul­ta­ne­ous­ly. A range of reflec­tive fin­ish­es such as metal­lic inks, foil­ing, var­nish­es, and gilt edg­ing were employed through­out to play with light. Diag­o­nal lines were used to rep­re­sent light beams which then morph into geo­met­ric star pat­terns. These pat­terns were then print­ed with sub­tle clear var­nish­es, only to reveal them­selves on cer­tain angles when catch­ing the light.

PRODUCTION LESSONS

When doing intricate foiling it helps to make your foil block thicker as the acid can shrink the block in particularly fine areas. Gilt edging is a very manual process and not a particularly delicate one, the books are placed in a clamp and then sanded, so some of the foil and paper shards can spray into the pages if not done carefully.
