Artist's Statement

The work leads you in from the entrance and towards the new curatorial space, unifying the space, and engaging the viewer’s awareness of the structure of the space and the studios.

Each of the 8 pairs is made with one half acrylic paint applied directly on to the wall, the other half being a ready made industrial material, ranging from foamboard, plexiglass, twin-walled polycarbonate sheet to galvanised metal, chipboard and matchboard. These ready made areas have been fixed with round headed screws and washers in each corner, the fittings clearly showing.

Some of the painted areas are colours mixed by the artist and applied with a single layer, byroller; other surfaces have been built using glazes and have been created in several layers.

Each pair, part of the whole, also invites the viewer’s response to its particular qualities/ relationships, as they walk past the sections, interplay between the parts forming part of the experience.
