London-based artist and designer Kim Thome’s ‘Works On Reflection II’ combines colour, geometry and patterns in a spatial installation that uses an entire gallery space as the canvas.
“Works On Reflection II is a spatial installation which is the result of a longer investigation exploring the ‘reflective’.” says the William Benington Gallery. “Using the gallery space as the canvas, the installation will use the ‘reflective’ as medium. Colour, geometry and patterns are central in staging a fictional space for these to merge, creating an ephemeral ever-changing environment.”
Using semi-transparent and reflective material such as two-way mirror, Thome manipulates the fore and background of the piece in such a way that the graphic aesthetic becomes something of a relational experience with the viewer.
“Fascinated by the obscure reality projected in semi-reflective surfaces, these calculated interventions play with our expectancy of our surroundings and spaces.”
Thome is a recent graduate of the Royal College of Art’s Design Products program. Works on Reflection II runs from July 16 to August 20 at the William Benington Gallery in London.
