Studio M was looking for a Florida artist whose complement the impressive design of our recent project at Signature Place, a new landmark condo/mixed-use complex in downtown St. Petersburg, FL.
Signature Place features an innovative slim glass design that resembles a gossamer sail, transforming St. Peterburg’s waterfront skyline in a most fitting way. Menaul’s arresting artwork is an appropriate choice for the architectural artistry of Signature Place as both seem to elicit similar responses from those who see them, helping to maintain design continuity from the outside in. Words like “intriguing, inspriring, awestruck, and touched me in a personal way” have all been used to describe both Menaul’s artwork and the architecture of Signature Place.
Menaul’s artwork is like air, crystal and light with a wonderful infusion of colors that forward the Signature Place design. I have always been intrigued with how light, color, textures and sound can influence a space and we strive to produce interiors that enliven the senses. Menaul is a master in his use of light and color on giclee canvases that pick up the surrounding elements, tying the decor together, bringing life to the space.
