Fascinating Concrete Project Involving Sarah Arnett

I was out of luck with the Pantone Colour of the Year 2013, which was revealed a few days ago to be 17-5641 Emerald. So, it wasn't my first choice of Lemon Zest, nor was it my second choice of Poppy, but (and don't tell anyone) after only a few hours of thinking and visualising emerald on various clothing and design I was hopelessly, madly in love with it!
Today though, I have found inspiration in a medium of little colour: concrete! Sarah Arnett, an artist I very much admire, has been working on a fascinating project for the Brighton Council. She has been appointed as the community artist along with Tom Hardiment - Landscape Architect -  for a new piece of artwork that will be installed on the north lawns of the Level Park in Brighton (due to re open in summer 2013.)
These incredible images below are Sarah's first drawings of the elm trees surrounding the park, and the corresponding concrete samples, for the 2D installation.

Sarah is working with Graphic Relief Ltd who will cast the final pieces. Sarah promises to show us more from this project as it progresses, so keep an eye out on her Behance site for updates or to view the project these are part of. If you are interested to find out more about Sarah (and I recommend you do, as her work is astounding) you can view more of her art on Behance, or at her website.
