Djanogly Gallery Installation: Ice Form - Nov 2014 - Feb 2014

Ice Form-AS-Djanogly Café-31.jpg

Ice Form takes inspiration from the freezing process as it occurs in the natural world. This natural phenomenon can create magnificent forms and patterns such as icicles, ice caves and frozen waterfalls. This installation was produced through multiple layers of hand cut and folded paper, which builds up to form the 3D structure. A layering process which has a connection to the creation of the ice structures seen in nature, which are often formed from layers of melted and frozen water.

Ice Form was commissioned by The Djanogly Gallery, Nottingham.

York College Gallery is pleased to present a new exhibition by artist Andy Singleton called ‘Galaxy’. 

Inspired by photography of galaxies and nebula from the Hubble space telescope, Andy Singleton explores the scale, intricacy and beauty of our universe through large scale paper cut installations, 2D paper cuttings and hand drawn illustration. Through these processes, he hopes to capture the same sense of awe that we feel when we look into the deepest regions of space. For his show at York College Gallery he will be creating a new site specific installation, along with a series of smaller 2D and 3D works
