Daniel Templeman is a contemporary artist working predominantly with highly visible public artworks. Working with geometry, depth of colour and texture Daniel’s works can be bold and visually striking – claiming their place in our urban landscape.
Since manufacturing Daniel’s first major sculptural commission – Confluence –at the Brisbane Magistrates court in 2004 Albert Smith Signs is once again privileged to work with Daniel as his manufacturing partner for his latest commission -“Missing Corners”.
“Missing Corners” is a striking entrance statement for installation at Blue St North Sydney, as part of the North Sydney Council’s new Public Art Trail.
Our concept started with Daniel’s timber scale model for design development and agreed solutions for associated engineering constraints for transportation and installation logistics. Our design team utilised Solidworks to develop a to scale 3D model for our manufacturing team .
“Missing Corners” overall shape is geometrically constructed for individual segments to line up as triangles.
The aluminium segments were hand folded channels wrapping around a complex steel frame, and painted in an off white to allow for ease of future maintenance. Recycled heritage grade ironbark timber panels were then recessed into the white aluminium open channels.
Albert Smith Signs take a holistic approach to the manufacture of artwork projects, regardless of scale and materials, achieving a successful outcome for the artist and the community. We meet with the artist as often as needed within our manufacturing facility to ensure their creative vision and our manufacturing intent are in harmony.
