The first Australian showing of international artist and now Noosa local, Stanislas Piechaczek, and his exhibition ‘Hotel Coco’ was unveiled on opening night, Friday 20 April, at CLO Studios in Noosa Junction.
Guests sipped French champagne and mingled with collectors as they were transported to the mythical ‘Hotel Coco’ - an imaginary place on the equator’s circle. Artist STANISLAS PIECHACZEK drew inspiration from his French roots, and the sub-tropical vibe of his adopted home town. Hotel Coco is ‘Coco’ from the Spanish word Co`ctel meaning cocktail and refers to the French fashion icon, Coco Chanel.
The sixteen works of art in this collection are described as an eclectic, tribal blend of culture and wildlife, resonating with strong musical notes and memories of French artists like Serge Gainsbourg, Georges Brassens, Edith Piaf and the jazzed-up funk of Elis Regina, Joao Gilberto, Ibrahim Ferrer, Jackie Mittoo, and Dave Brubeck.
When I first saw Stan’s work, I was drawn to his larger than life geometric shapes, contrasting patterns and colours – CLO Studios, Chloe Tozer explains.
‘Stanislas’ art can be found on collector’s walls around the world. Stan has participated in numerous solo exhibitions in Australia and was recently selected as a finalist for the Clayton Utz Art Award, so we’re incredibly proud to be able to present his works to our clients along with Noosa locals and visitors,’ Chloe said.
‘The art looks fabulous on our walls and it was a lot of fun transforming the studio into our version of Hotel Coco.
‘We love to feature local and international talent, be it laneway parties, pop-up events or art exhibitions. Watch this space for more,’ Chloe said.
This unique collection of work will be on display for two weeks until 5 May at CLO Studios.
