On view (and free!) at UT’s Visual Art Center until March 10th is a site-specific installation, Suspended After Image, by artist, Diana Al-Hadid.
From the UT VAC website –
“For her site-specific installation Suspended After Image in the VAC’s Vaulted Gallery, Al-Hadid focuses on the history of Gothic, Northern Renaissance, and Mannerist paintings as the starting point for her exhibition. As a sculptor, Al-Hadid is intrigued by the improbable pictorial space, metaphorical colors, floating bodies within isolated and disjunctive events, as well as the forced perspective and horizon lines found in paintings from this rich period of art history. During a recent visit to Spain, she was struck by a Gothic painting of the Visitation which serves as a point of departure for her sculpture that will be built on-site at the VAC. Using a 3D modeling program and CNC router for the first time in her work, Suspended After Image explores the translation of a painted pictorial space into an immersive sculptural installation.”
