Liz West continues her quest to create new chromatic experiences as she captivates audiences with her colourful installations. Her latest work – Through No. 3 – can currently be seen on display in Spinningfields, Manchester until 6 January 2016.
As an artist, West is keen to immerse viewers in pure colour, often inviting them to move through the space – often walking, running or dancing – to experience the vibrant hues. This new installation, which opened to the public at the end of November, follows this trend; however, this is the first one that does so outdoors, amidst an urban architectural landscape. In essence, she is calling to invite visitors to indeed look at their surroundings in a new light.
She comments, 'Making your way inside the multi-coloured corridor, visitors will see the world around them transformed by saturated colour. The coloured barrier between the outside and inside will create a striped cloak and distortion in an array of different hues, transforming the usual colorations and appearance of the outside environment.'
The triangular-shaped prism creates a new form of architecture alongside the city high-rises and is open to the public daily until 6 January 2016. Through No.3 has been curated by Castlefield Gallery in partnership with Allied London and is located at Crown Square in the Spinningfields area of Manchester.
