Looking Glass

Glass and mixed media
H2000 x W1700 x D1700 mm

"This semi – transparent, Dichroic colour shifting cube is covered in a petrochemical film like a fine oil slick. Oil is simultaneously opaque with its dense luminous black as well as translucent and iridescent when molecular thin.
This alluring attractiveness beguiles the eye away from the contents - An accumulation of materials gathered from ‘The Yard’. The wasteland through rainbow coloured spectacles. Through the Looking Glass lies the hypnotic surreal and strangely compelling world of our own paradox."
Gavin Turk, 2015
