Movement: Andrew Barber + Jeena Shin
This large scale collaborative painting installation by Andrew Barber and Jeena Shin invited visitors to step into an all-encompassing abstract landscape.
Responding to the architecture of The Dowse and using only shades of black, white and grey, the artists’ collaboration became an enquiry into pattern that explored how shape and tone create movement.
The installation combined Barber’s floor-paintings, which evoke the gentle swell and dip of the ocean, with Shin’s subtle geometric wall paintings, where shapes recede and re-appear. This created an immersive experience allowing visitors to become an active part of the artwork.
