Fiona Grady: Cross Sections
Aug
16
to Sep 9

Fiona Grady: Cross Sections

‘Cross Sections’ is a site-responsive exhibition that explores the relationship between interior and exterior spaces in a public setting. Using the double surface of Glass Cloud Gallery’s window based space Grady will work directly onto the windows and walls to create a three dimensional drawing. The artwork will be composed of hand cut vinyl on the windows, and pasted screenprints on the walls, mimicking advertising and sign posters. The layers of the geometric shapes will allow a visual illusion to occur as an artwork that seemingly ‘moves’ when the viewer to walks past it. The urban scenery reflected on the windows will draw parallels between the motifs of the artwork and the architectural details of the surrounding buildings. Occupying an advertising space, the installation will question the use of graphic language in public spaces, asking where the line is drawn between advertising, street art and design? The exhibition recognizes the relationship between architecture, installation art and decoration to celebrate the use of public venues as an experimental site for the creation of new artwork. 

Fiona Grady (b. 1984, Leeds, UK) studied BA Fine Art at the University of Wales In Cardiff (UWIC) 2004-2007 and MA Fine Art at Wimbledon School of Art (UAL) 2010- 2011.  She lives and works in London. Recent solo exhibitions include ‘Rendered Invisible’ The Art House, Wakefield (2016);  ‘The Movements’ Adhoc in Bochum, Germany (2017); and 'Shadow Play' Chapter Art in the Bar in Cardiff (2018). Selected group exhibitions include ‘Dialogues’ Flowers Gallery, London (2018); ‘Colour, Order, System’ Sid Motion Gallery, London; ‘A5xn’ Dalla Rosa Gallery, London (all 2017); ‘Prison Drawing Project’ in the Old Town Prison, Scarborough (2016); and ‘Expanding Systems’ APT Gallery, London (2018). Grady has been short-listed for several printmaking prizes including Neo-print Prize (2014), Bainbridge Open (2013) and Clifford Chance’s Survey of MA printmaking (2011).  Her public commissions include ‘A Field of Light’ Deptford Rail Station (2012), ‘Illumination II’ Leeds Town Hall (2013), ‘Natural Triangulations’ Walthamstow Wetlands Visitor Centre (2017) and 'Kaleidoscope' Broadgate London (2018).
