¶ 25 Leave a comment on paragraph 25 0 When I came to this image I started to imagine this as a large scale installation work. I made a mood board. I don’t know where I found the image of the installation shown below. It was in a box of images I keep that that I found interesting. Suddenly the image had new possibilities for me.
¶ 28 Leave a comment on paragraph 28 0 My own reflective glass image led me to look at further large scale pieces and I was drawn to this work by British artist Glen Onwin. His 1919 exhibition As Above, So Below took place in a derelict chapel in Halifax. the work explored various alchemical process. In this work and artificial concrete pool was filled with a mix of water, black brine and wax. The ceiling and walls are reflected in the pool. I love the way this looks like an antique mirrored floor
¶ 35 Leave a comment on paragraph 35 0 I was also inspired by Ron Haselden’s installation Coliseum (1989). This work could only be seen at night through the windows of the gallery. The work had three large circles of light that ‘appeared to spin and also run back and forth through space’

¶ 40 Leave a comment on paragraph 40 0 This work entitles ‘Inside Corona’. It is reminiscent of disease viewed through a microscope. The audience moves through the exhibition like the live organisms found under a microscopic slide. Corona also refers to the rarefied gaseous envelope of the sun and other stars and of part of the body resembling a crown. The work will have a golden glow and a regal presence.
