"Meanderer” is a site-specific painting installation exhibited in Wells Cathedral in Wells, Somerset, UK during the Wells Art Contemporary 2019 exhibition. The installation aims to challenge the viewer’s approach to experiencing paintings, the Cathedral’s environment and the world beyond. The viewer is invited to explore rather than merely look at the painted facets of the work.
I have developed a visual language of paint, steel, linen and polyester to create works that relate to my memories of journeys. which blur the lines between painting and sculpture. The metal structures function as three dimensional drawings as well as boundaries, creating new pathways through the spaces they are shown in. My intention was to translate my experiences of certain environments into a navigable space within the exhibition space, so that the viewer has a physical experience of the work that resembles a journey.
Many of the shapes and elements in the paintings have been taken from the environment such us rocks, lakes and other forms that have been created by nature. These are inspired by my journeys in landscapes as diverse as Iceland, the Himalayas and my native home of Cyprus.
