LONG BOXES – 12 colours2017
Sheila Ravnkilde showed LONG BOXES – 12 colours, and BOXES – 24 colours at Harrington Mill Studios in 2016
The LONG BOXES activated the long wall. The viewer was offered a constantly changing experience of the work as they walked past, the eye invited to pause and focus on the qualities of both the individual boxes, and the whole wall.
BOXES – 24 colours drew the eye on entering the exhibition space. This wall offered a constantly changing experience of the work and the relationships between the boxes, as the eye scanned 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.
