2018 Season IV
Artist Statement/ BiographyMiranda Blennerhassett’s work explores the relationship between art and architecture through the creation of large-scale installations. Using of a range of materials, including paint, fabrics, vinyl, video etc., Blennerhassett works directly with the gallery walls to examine the subjects of urban design, contemporary architecture, the role of ornamentation and the construction of pattern. At the centre of this practice is a desire to pay attention to details that are otherwise overlooked but that impact the way we subconsciously react to a space or context.
