Liz West recently presented new work in her solo show On Brown & Violet Grounds at Piccadilly Place, Manchester. This video shows how the work Dispersion of White changed saturation in the space from day to night. In real-time this video lasts just over 3 hours.
"A sizeable sheet of Perspex has been laid over an assortment of fluorescent sticklights. Your eyes begin to assess the situation. Unsurprisingly, the vivacious sheet of Perspex transfixes them; red, blue and yellow all fluidly bleed into each other without any clear delineation. The robust form of the sticklights project out from underneath the Perspex, like a glimpse at the inner workings of a complex industrial machine. You notice that four circular discs hold up the sheet; they are humble paint pots. Dispersion of White opens up a dialogue between the work and the practice of painting. The subtle introduction of the paint pot is a loaded gesture. Is the surface of the Perspex a comment on painterly sensibility?"
