The salon hang is a recurring motif in many of my own projects. Essential in any salon hang is an element of a sculptural nature, which Franky’s work would take to a new level. I would love to see this work hung in a small group on an odd shaped wall, perhaps at the base of an architectural staircase to add a dynamic correlation between space and shape. I also sense a reference to origami in these wooden works, an unexpected but welcome correlation.

I am so drawn to the strong presence of this piece and could imagine it sitting quite comfortably in my home with its rich bright palette. I can only imagine the interplay of this piece with the wall, adding beautiful shadows extending the sculpture beyond its physical form. I envisage this piece in an all-white interior, so that its colour and form truly pop.

I love these geometric colourful pieces and their three-dimensional quality. A few of these works arranged as a cluster would add interest and dimension to any space. I see this piece perfect for an entryway, interacting with the architecture of its surrounds. I love art in unexpected places.
