Subiaco Penrose Tiling

Simon Gantlet is a well known public artist in Perth, Australia. Simon engaged Ombrae Studios to execute his Penrose Tiling Design in Ombrae for his public art commission in Subiaco Square in the city centre. The design was well suited for an Ombrae treatment. Ombrae, as is its nature, allowed the design to have a strong visual impact and also changed and shifted its colours as the north-facing exposure allowed the sun to transit across the surface from early morning through the evening—creating moving and dynamic visuals.

The artwork is backlit at the onset of darkness, which adds yet another pleasant and unexpected reading of the artwork when shifted from front lighting to back lighting.
