Pae White’s installation (Untitled) 2017, uses graphic forms writ large as the starting point for an exploration of space. Acrylic yarn extends the outline of the flat shapes in three-dimensions, as solid lines within the gallery. Moving through the room and between the coloured forms shifts the viewer’s perception of space as new compositions of line, form and colour reveal themselves from different positions.

Goals

Mixed media immersive installation involving supergraphics and meticulously plotted string. An environment was created where volume is asserted with materials that are barely there against a backdrop of high contrast supergraphics derived from the identity program of the 1968 Mexico Olympics.
