AirSpace Studio Group Exhibition
Assemblage 1: Airspace Blue Dust
(click images to see closeup)




Blue Dust consists of a painting on the wall in the AirSpace hallway. The image is inspired by a section of the AirSpace building that is particularly significant. It is the area around the entrance doorway and incorporates the window to Joyce’s studio. It brings together the architectural scene of the front door with a ‘blue broken ceramic pattern’, similar to a Spode Italian Blue pattern.

The wall directly under the painting and around the pattern has splattered paint, cement and clay left visible. Pigment being allowed to drop from the painting onto the wall and floor, leaving a trace of materials and process of painting.

The painting will incorporate colour, scale, pattern and texture, bringing together materials, process, histories and a sense of place.
