Blue addresses the physicality and spatial perception of the colour blue. Blue is created with multiple layers of painted transparent film hung at specific intervals within the gallery. The blue pigment is carried through the space on the transparencies that, once lit, create a blur of three-dimensional color. The result is a field of an intense saturated tint that radiates from the architecture with no defined form or boundaries. Blue imagines new concepts of hue in space manifesting the colour as a three-dimensional object. Embracing the spectacle of “blueness,” the installation delivers a destabilizing and powerful experience.
