An exploration of space focussing on angles and features of a gallery space.
My work concerns the use of space involving architecture, light, shadow and negative space. The work aims to bring to attention unused and unnoticed areas within the artist’s workplace. Using fine cotton thread the works affect subtle interventions into a given space integrating new special geometric forms which interact with the existing architecture.
My practice questions space and what use we make of it; creating work that is hard to read spatially confronts the viewer with questionable placement and use of unusual positioning. The combination of delicate thread in open space creates an optical illusion of sort, creating pattern where there was none before.
There forms a relationship between the work and its platform for viewing, the gallery’s architecture; or a type of intervention, an urge to change the normative function of the space.
