the art of seeing space
This work represents a work in progress, an exploration of space, of seeing space, this space, through the question ‘what is perspective’? Five artists agreed to come together in this inquiry. We met here in this space where you are now standing and set up to paint for a period of days. This work on the walls is the result of this shared attempt. I feel that we have just scratched the surface and that the work itself and your response to it will inspire its continuation.
From whereever you may place yourself within the space, in every direction you turn to face, a different perspective, a different point of view.
A white empty room. What is there to see, to perceive?
More than I can imagine, more than I can communicate and in the attempt to make what I see visible I see more. And the more I see the more impossible paint and canvas becomes...
So what is it for?
To look in order to see.
Thanks to artists Terri Quinn, Gilles Goyette, Sarah Hunter, Roger Chow, for using art as a medium to explore what is possible,
