The photographs submitted are of a scale model 1: 25 for a project to transform a derelict inner city space; a place to walk in, dream in, meditate in or just a place to sit in the quiet.

The model in the photograph is made of acetate sheets painted with stained glass paints and stiff card painted to represent oxidised steel. 110 x 44 x 25 cms highest x average height 12.5

If it were to be constructed, at full size it would be made of Perspex panels painted with stained glass paint and supported by oxidised steel . Once built it would cover an area approximately 26.5 meters x 10.4 meters . The tallest point would be 6 meters high and the average size of the Perspex panels would be 3 meters x 6 or 7 meters.

The space is structured quite formally within a rectilinear construction using geometric shaped supports of oxidised steel. The formal elements of the structure making a counter point to the wilder freer compositions of the painted panels. The paintings have an elemental feeling of nature, of the sea,
mountains and trees….. but I also want to create an atmosphere harking back to the rich colouring and intense spirituality of the early renaissance, the Flemish primitives and the great Stained Glass Tradition.
