Tempered Deflections II2015
a series of drawings painted directly onto a selection of Footfall Art's street level windows. These artworks are inspired by shop fitters whitewashed windows that can be seen throughout our urban landscape. Occurring during periods of transition, windows are painted out for practical reasons yet the result is both aesthetic and poetic; they have their own moods and are often reminiscent of clouds or waves in the natural world. They will provide an unexpected depth to the windows acting as a physical barrier between the interior and exterior. The pieces mimic these unintentional artworks but with an artistic engagement – each section of the paintings is composed from different brush strokes and densities of lines forming a range of tempos. They highlight how each gestural mark can express an energy or emotion whilst also creating a white canvas that reflects the surrounding inner city street and skyline it references.
