STAIRWELL PROJECT: Royal Hibernian Academy. This project is a 44 piece oil painting installation (range 100cm x 110cm to 28cm x 11cm) with an amorphous wall drawing in white ink. The dark background is painted using wall paint.
The model for this installation is made to a scale of 1:7 (h90cm x w85cm x d50cm; made from MDF and card (stairs), photographic paper for paintings images and an ink drawing on Fabriano paper.
Underpinning this work is research into how perception occurs, how viewers imbue a space with meaning based on their life experiences. There is the potential for many possible perceptual interpretations. Spaces are never neutral environments.
