Unfamiliar Display


After seeing Bridget Riley’s exhibition at the Hayward Gallery, it came to realisation that there are other methods of presenting a painting. Because the Winter Cabaret was an opportunity to experiment with something I’ve never done before, I decided to examine how my paintings can fit into the space and display them in a more unconventional way. The installation is a combination of paintings on different surfaces. Segments are drawn directly onto the wall, MDF sheets and canvas. Previously I have hung the yellow painting horizontally at eye level but the result is no where near as dynamic as hanging it on the top of the wall. Combined with the 3D effect from the polystyrene cone inserted underneath, it generates an attention centerpoint.
