This work was born out of a series of drawings and paintings on paper and I wanted to see them in large scale. Often when working on paper or sketching, the works don’t feel complete until I can walk into them at large scale. So I was keen to get this one on a wall.
As so often happens, the work changed when translated from sketch to wall. I extended the lines from the cube present in the blue form, to further interact with the features of the space. Although I left these lines incomplete, they operate as an illusion, suggesting the presence of a cube.
I love this space because of its ‘ugly’ architectural features; the ducting, the pin board, the pipes.
