During 2010 I researched hollow, partly obscured structures such as wells, which a viewer can experience by looking into the structure and imagining that part of the space which remains unseen. I investigated the use of forms, materials and the creation of spatial relationships, through which an artwork could evoke these hollow structures and the resulting imagined spaces.
The form, arrangement and surfaces of Imagined Space 1 encouraged peering inside, and viewing of unexpected reflected space. Its materials – mainly semi-transparent paint-soaked muslin fabric stretched like skin, suspended, and draped - and its colour graduation, at once hide and reveal.
