The organiser liked my work and I was very excited to have been offered the chance to exhibit there this year, so I went up last week to view the potential space.
As last time, as well as lots and lots of sculptures in the gorgeous Swan Sanctuary, there will be work in glasshouses, and this is the one I hope to display my work in:
|A view of the glasshouse – look at all that light|
|That spot to the right of the path looks ideal|
I am thinking of some kind of free-standing structure,several panels, quite tall, so that for the top, you have to look up, and the light from the glass roof will shine through and highlight the texture.
|One of my original textured panels|
|Maybe not green, with all that lush, but this sort of texture|
|Perhaps bold, contrasting colours|
I’ll probably be working with texture again, although I’ll be thinking about the project brief/working titles over the next week or so to decide on what that will be. I do think this kind of texture will work really well though, in colours, as with the right kind of light it will cast lots of interesting patterns and shadows.
