Light Shifts, 2017
Site responsive vinyl window and emulsion paint wall drawings
Dimensions vary

A solo exhibition for Coventry Biennial 2017. ‘Light Shifts’ was an exhibition that combined a series of wall and window drawings to create an ambient and colourful space. The works included hand cut vinyl window drawings composed from geometric shapes that respond to the grid like window shutters in the venue. The colourful vinyl cast transparent colour into the room and the adjacent wall drawings. At times they brightened and glowed whilst on view to both the interior and exterior. The interior wall drawings mapped the light, imagining how on bright days, the forms would be projected onto the walls. The wall drawings were muted shifts of colours allowing exaggerated panes of light to stretch across the walls. The intention of the exhibition was to find ways to create interaction within the venue with simple gestures. The focus on shadows and daylight is a means to connect the inside and outside world. Encouraging the exhibitions audience to appreciate the environment around them and it's quieter moments.
