Blue Cubed

Architectural Space, Installation, Site Specific, Space, Wall

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.
