Laura Bordeaux talks about the Multi-media art work for United Illuminating Employee Lobby
by Carrie Ann Hubbard, Glastonbury Artist
Excerpt from article:
[One of her works is hanging in the employee lobby at United Illuminating in Orange.
Laura Bordeaux, president of FX Design Inc. in Glastonbury was doing work for UI when she saw Hubbard’s art at a show in town two summers ago and commissioned the piece.
“We were requested to locate art that was associated with the shoreline and New Haven. In my communications with UI, I felt they needed to [include] a couple of abstract textural pieces to add interest. I had a vision of finding a multimedia artist who could do cityscapes,” said Bordeaux.
After Hubbard did sketches, Bordeaux went to her studio “and brainstormed a little bit.”
Changes to the initial concepts included making the piece sturdier.
“Because it was a corporate installation, … things had to be secured in a different way,” said Bordeaux, to ensure that the piece would be stable, for example, “if someone bumped into it,” which would be more likely since the art would be in a public place. “Because I’m an interior designer, I had samples of mosaic tiles and I brought her some of them that she used in the piece,” she said. The piece was completed last summer.
“It’s something that will hold up,” Bordeaux said. “[Hubbard] was very easy to work with, very easygoing, very pleasant, very open to suggestions and ideas,” said Bordeaux.]
