Visual artist Ilse Black has been commissioned to produce a large-scale wall drawing for Aspex Guildhall.
Bournemouth based artist Black will be creating a 3D piece entitled ‘Cut Loose’, using red and cyan ink.
Black said: “To look at the drawing without the 3D specs, it appears as a series of small red and cyan parallel lines, possibly with some reference to perspective. When viewed with the 3D specs, the drawing transforms into a three dimensional spatial intervention.
The lines appear to float off the wall, and some seem to recede from the drawing plane. This is manipulated by spacing between red and cyan lines, and by which color is on the left and which on the right.”
Members of the public are invited to see the artist producing her artwork live on site at the following dates:
Wednesday 28 September
Thursday 29 September
Friday 30 September
Thursday 6 October
Friday 7 October
The artist graduated from Arts University Bournemouth (AUB) in 2010 with a BA (Hons) degree.
Black has exhibited her work at the Threadneedle Prize, The Royal West of England: Drawn 2013 and The National Open Art Competition 2010 and 2011, where she was awarded the Best from the South West.
Aspex Guildhall is a partnership between Aspex and Portsmouth Guildhall.
