D series Oriel 31

A second D series installation was commissioned by Elaine Marshall and shown at Oriel 31 in the summer of 1999. The work was viewed from the far end of the corridor, drawing attention to the two dimensional aspects of the composition and the complementary colours naturally present in the two spaces. Daylight in the corridor reflected off red brick and in the gallery was filtered through foliage. The rosy antechamber emphasised both the green light in the main space and the blue naturally present in the glass doors. It was inspired by a James Turrell piece that I had read about but not seen. The objects, modifications to the space and restricted view encouraged observant visitors to concentrate on what was already there. Ever since that summer I always try to ask for the lights to be switched off in any interesting building.
