Stanley & Audrey Burton Art Gallery
Had a look round the uni art gallery for the first time today and was mildly surprised at its content and quality. The contemporary room was a particular highlight. This piece by Robert Currie called '1 Hour, 27 Minutes and 13 Seconds' is made from video tape held vertically across a canvas. Currie's fascination with line is evident in this piece as it is in some of his more recent work where he looks at the chaos theory in a unique sence of sculpture.
'913m of monofilament and black acrylic'
The layering of monofilament covered in acrylic creates an almost holographic illusion of an image which creates a strange 3D moment in time.
