Fiona Grady: Spectra Waves
Fiona Grady’s new work Spectra Waves also speaks to the passing of time. A complex work of light and colour, Grady will create a ‘stained glass’ for the North Gallery transforming interior space using the changing patterns of light and encouraging visitors to pause and observe the passage of time manifested in the changing installation. At night Grady’s work will be lit from within the gallery to create a unique temporary public artwork for the city. The title of the piece references both the physical form of the work itself and the splitting of light required to make colour visible.
Fiona Grady’s practice recognises the relationship between architecture, installation art and decoration; often using traditional mediums in a modern context. She creates large site-responsive drawings on walls, windows and floors using sequences of dispersing geometric shapes. The drawings are spatial systems composed from repeating intervals that expand in proportion or direction. Grady has exhibited across the UK and internationally: Shadow Play, Chapter Gallery Art Cardiff, 2018; Expanding Systems, APT Gallery, London, 2018; The Movements, Adhoc, Bochum, Germany, 2017; Matérias Primas, PADA Gallery, Lisbon, 2017; Mono, Flowers Gallery, London, 2017.
