Sacred Heart Performing Arts Centre, New Town, Hobart

The artistic intent was to convey a joyous performance venue image, at the same time alluding to the particular spiritual and physical context of place. The Federation Cross and balancing horizontal and nameplate, in polished stainless steel, anchor the other elements of the overall composition. The pair of masks, traditionally associated with theatrical performance, hint to Tasmanian context.

The bright powdercoat colouring of these stainless steel elements contrasts with the polished brightness of the Federation Cross. The perforated surface creates layers of complexity.
