JESSIE STANLEY – MECHANICS LANE PASTE-UP 29 OCTOBER – end 2018
Jessie Stanley’s Mechanics Lane paste-up commission will be a series of vibrant colour prints featuring typography and imagery that invite interaction to discover some of the hidden history at this site in Mechanics Lane.
The primary colours of red/ green or red/blue will be overlaid in an expansive work covering the complete area as well as temporary filters adhered to the Phee Broadway Theatre foyer windows opposite. When the artwork is viewed through either filter, different aspects of the work will be revealed.
The work will be an iterative development of Jessie’s practice focus: unearthing the stories bound to a place and time to create experiences for community that enhance connection to place – and encourage contemplation about time, evolution, legacy, and identity.
