Capturing Light

Solo Exhibition at The Foundry Gallery, London

The Foundry Gallery, 39 Old Church Street Chelsea, London SW3 5BS 

9 June - 23 July, Open: Monday - Friday, 10am - 5pm and by appointment


Capturing Light is an exhibition of new work by site responsive artist Fiona Grady. Grady's practice is rooted in minimalism; she explores the expanded field of drawing whilst considering the relationships that can be found between installation art, architecture, graphics, and design within her work. "Playing on the presence of shadows, reflection, colour and light" she is best known for her distinctive site-specific window installations of repeating shapes and colours. Often installed in public spaces, the designs are created in response to their surrounding environment which "interrupt the predictable horizontals and verticals of architecture."


Capturing Light explores our relationships with natural light and connects to The Foundry Gallery's surrounding environment on Old Church Street in Chelsea. The project has been developed from Grady's research into the window as an architectural device that not only filters light but also a framework that connects the outside world with the inside.
