Just a little catch up from last week.  Here is an installation that I completed last week.

An installation that sits inside an enclosed room with four walls, only one wall is blank.  From the doorway woodgrain look vinyl triangles are adhered to the floor tiles and project away from the door, toward the radiator.  Grey wool shoots up from the same point as the vinyl at the door and spreads out, attaching to a series of large hooks, already existing in the site, on the adjacent wall.  More grey wool launch from the corner of the radiator and fan out to attach to the opposite wall.  The wool creates a kind of half triangle in the space.  On the walls are a series of geometric shapes in pastel aqua acrylic paint and more woodgrain vinyl.  An outline in graphite of an interior is drawn with an untrue perspective and intertwines with other shapes.  Above the row of hooks is a patch of rolled peach acrylic paint.  Combined these various geometric shapes create an illusory space within the wall and appear to be a series of untrue perspectives combined.

This space had a lot of existing features to respond to, like the hooks, radiator and window.  I focussed a lot on perspective and line in this work, with only a small area for a painterly element.  I like painterly elements.  More painterly elements next time! I like coupling geometric shapes, lines and brushstrokes – or in this case roller strokes.
