Text Box: MA Glass	 29 September - 28 October 2012
Colonnade Gallery, Waterfront Museum, Swansea

There is very little strong colour in the views from the Colonnade Gallery.  The strongest is the crimson colour of the Waterfront banner.  This design drew attention to that colour, through framing devices and use of a ruby red enamel.  The BT tower lies beyond the banner and its glazing forms a strong grid, represented in the design in positive and negative.

 

Panel F purposely spanned across a silicon joint in the Gallery glazing.  Usually this would be detrimental to a design but in this case the introduction of a vertical line into the design roughly corresponded with the golden mean.  The section to the right carried meticulous detail relating to the building grid, whereas the section to the left was much simpler in its interpretation of the forms beyond, and carried the strongest crimson colour references.

 

The framing device for panel F was a flat, sand blasted surface with no detail.  It acted as a simple container for the design, which was predominantly the representation of a single complete architectural form.
