Making moves : an adventure through space, colour & form : an exegesis presented with exhibition as fulfilment of the requirements for thesis Masters of Fine Arts at Massey University, Wellington, New Zealand
This exegesis reveals a practice that has been driven by making as the
means to address questions concerning colour, space, form, time and site.
From an initial desire to create a sustainable and self generating painting
practice this text plots the development of a systematic method that uses
data derived from choose-your-own-adventure books. As the system is
deployed across a variety of sites, wall drawing and paper folding become
the focus where the rules based generation of form is fused with an intuitive
sense of placement and use of colour. Further deployment explores the
role of colour in response to site, the temporal nature of this work and it’s
engagement with the viewer resulting in a response to architectural site.
