A Study of Tate St. Ives

Below: Series of explorations with Anthony Gormley figures juxtaposed with real figures.


Below: Windows reflected and Rotated


Repeated visits to St. Ives provided rich sources of photography. The Tate St. Ives overlooks Porthmeor Beach. On a bright day the building seems to fill with the Cornish light famous for drawing down artists over the decades. On one such day I captured a number of reference points inside the building*. The end work is intended to turn the picture windows upstairs looking over the beach into a set of prints which re-create the ghost of a window but only when displayed as a set.

Other studies were also made around this time of details and geometry. Some shown here.

*Note: it is no longer allowed to photograph Tate St. Ives inside featuring the architecture or otherwise without special permissions.

The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there
