Two Point Perspective and Black O Wall Drawings

14 May - 30 May 1998


Kerrie Poliness' Black O Wall Drawings loom some three-metres high. Drawn in marker pen directly onto the wall, they create vivid illusions of three dimensionality. To create the drawings, drafts-people were first asked to estimate points around a circle, then used those points to create grids. The irregularities generate odd and distinctive distortions in the drawings, which are different every time they are made. Stephen Bram's site-specific wall paintings also explore space. Suggesting a rectangle tilted in three dimensions, his wall painting for us is based on two diverging vanishing points.
