3 to 14 August
Late Night Art Belfast Opening 3 August, 6pm
The archetypal image of a building can be subtracted down to the basic shapes that make up the walls, roof and floor. In recognition of perspective Two Dimensional shapes and form can be simplified even further, to a geometric common denominator. Shapes emerge as non-structures but strangely recognisable as architectural forms. Utilizing construction and building materials SUBSTRATA attempts to extend the geometric into layered objects of interest. Aesthetic art objects, combining the veil of built walls and the veneer of material form.
