LONG BOXES – 12 colours2016
Sheila Ravnkilde showed LONG BOXES – 12 colours, and BOXES – 24 colours at Harrington Mill Studios.
The LONG BOXES activate the long wall. The viewer is offered a constantly changing experience of the work as they walk past, the eye invited to pause and focus on the qualities of both the individual boxes, and the whole wall.
BOXES – 24 colours draws the eye on entering the exhibition space. This wall offers a constantly changing experience of the work and the relationships between the boxes, as the eye scans the wall.
The boxes in both pieces of work were built up with layers of acrylic paint and glazes.
The work was installed to work with the exhibiting space, heightening the viewer’s experience of the space.
