Sarah Pringle, director of Art-Partners, worked in close conjunction with Parkland’s design team, and interior designer SCDA, to define artworks that would match their design concept. She created a unique, theme-based art space utilizing the surrounding natural environment and the traditional Chinese five elements—metal, wood, water, fire, earth—to harmonize profoundly pure artwork forms with Raffles Hotels' high-end and classy image. Sarah engaged in overall art strategy, curatorial themes, artist selection, commissioning work development, procurement, shipment, installation, documentation, artists’ media interviews, and aftercare.
As an art consultant for the Raffles Shenzhen, Sarah utilized her experience, knowledge, and network of international artists, to recommend to the client several artists to choose from, proposing artworks based around the core narrative of the traditional Chinese five elements. She facilitated the selected artist’s artwork proposals and design presentations, and the final commissioned work.
