Client: Hutchinson Builders
Artist: Simeon Nelson

Brecknock Consulting were engaged by Hutchinson Builders to manage the Brisbane City Council percent for art requirement. Following the development of a Curatorial Rationale, UK artist Simeon Nelson was selected from a shortlist to develop a commission for the facade of the new residential tower in Brisbane's CBD. The resulting work consists of three steel fins; Efflorescence references vegetal form, not directly from nature but rather from the eclecticism of nineteenth century architectural ornament that pillaged historical and ethnographic styles including South Pacific carving and tattooing as well as Chinese and Thai ornamental aesthetics.
