“Colour to continue had to occur in space.”
– Donald Judd
Within my practice, I aim to challenge the conventional assumptions around printmaking and display. I do this through the use of 3D constructs. I am interested in engaging the viewer in a different way to question the relationships between space, colour, form and material. By using the artist book as a basis i have created an abstract sculpture that interacts with the space and influences how the viewer engages and understands that space. The use of contrasting colours enhances the shape and form of the concertina, questioning the relationship between object and print. A case has been made specifically to house this book form and it acts as an additional, changeable sculpture which echoes its counterpart. A shelf has also been made for this sculpture, acting as a plinth it creates a contradiction between something that is historically tactile into something that isn’t supposed to be touched.
