In July 2023 I was commissioned to present work in the large lightbox situated in the entrance to BALTIC Gateshead. The lightbox consisted of a 2 x 6m fabric print with LED edge lighting in a steel frame.
“For the Baltic Lightbox commission, Tate has merged recent paintings to make a new, large-scale work, Peripheral Visions. This larger scale transforms Tate’s original 1/6th scale model scenes into a near life-size representation, immersing the viewer in her familiar terracotta colour, which is expanded further by the rust coloured steel of the surrounding Baltic walls.
The title, Peripheral Visions, also references the location of the lightbox within a transitional space at the threshold to the gallery building, one that is usually passed through unnoticed. Peripheral Visions offers a chance to pause and reflect on subtler aspects of ourselves and the world around us that might otherwise pass us by. “
