Art Beast by River ‘This work depicts the building as a living creative entity crouched in its riverine setting. Creativity is a powerful force and I wanted to express that.’

‘My first response to this image was to wonder what was there before it was built and then to think about its uses and the people who worked in it and were served by it. Layers provide glimpses through the building into the past and of the present.’

Creating a Material Cycle Time I explored the 150 years of the building where the art gallery is present. I discovered by fully looking at the building that architectural fitting didn’t match. This was due the history of the building been extended through out its many uses. The architectural fittings that symbolised time was circular lighting fittings through the concept of cycles. I have materially explored the concept of cycles of time by drawing with recycled inkjet printer cartridges
