A Light Less Ordinary - Series No 6
2013
34.4 x 25.9 cm
Photograph and acrylic

Following Amy's residency in the LOOKOUT 8th - 13th July 2013

For A Light Less Ordinary, Amy Stephens has painted forms directly on to photographic images that are a direct response to the immediate architecture of the LOOKOUT.  The artist has used direct measurements taken from both the interior and exterior of the building to create architectonic coloured forms.  Paint inhabits the spaces with purposeful and engaging compostiions offering a sense of playfulness and performace to the work.  The works arrest the viewer with their bold, clean lines that add a sense of drawing to the work.  By using images of the existing architecture, Stephens has combined her sculptural practice and new found media.
