Lot94: Stella Whalley

VENT, 2017
Giclee print on fine archival paper, 54 x 44 cm, framed

Artist Statement: “This Giclee print is taken from the installation for the CRASH show which came from a series of experiments and tests made on a residency at Foundation Obras in Portugal in Sept 2017.This work was partly in response to the tragedy of Grenfell tower about the fragility of life, hope and inequality. The paper installations using drawing materials such as graphite, charcoal and silver pigment are a reference to the towers, the movement of the brush marks are in contrast to the ridged cuts of ventilation shafts. The large piece 5 meters long collapsed as the cuts were too wide, but this has served a purpose for the CRASH show and new video work has been recorded from this as though the work will evolve into something new.”
