Here are some photos of Banner Art Studio’s latest hanging fabric mobile project. We were commissioned to create large scale mobile art made of fabric for a brand new Wings of Hope family crisis and domestic violence center in Tulsa Oklahoma. The original atrium fabric art was created using a unique color palette chosen by our client.
The contemporary butterfly fabric sculptures were hand-sewn in purple, pink, turquoise and orange to reflect the organization’s logo colors and themes. The finished piece, which was designed in collaboration with our client, includes three butterflies measuring 10 feet by 10 feet. The installation symbolizes hope, transformations and new beginnings for families who visit the center.
The mobile installation hangs in the middle of the new office’s bright, naturally lit entryway and waiting room. Its translucent fabric moves gently with indoor air circulation and like stained glass, catches the sun shining through the skylight above.
Mobile sculpture artist Mettje Swift and her team at Banner Art Studio create large scale, modern kinetic artwork for medical offices, hospitals, schools and colleges, children’s centers, and commercial interior decor. Mettje’s kinetic artwork is reminiscent of the works of Alexander Calder and draws on her love of patterns and adornment of simple structures.
Says Swift, “I have adopted new forms and structures for interior decoration, corporate workspace design and architectural spaces. The installations are creatively adapted to the location, and the use of natural and artificial light brings out the jewelry-like translucence of the fabric.”
