‘Capturing Light’ explores our relationships with natural light and connects The Foundry Gallery to its surrounding environment. The project has been developed from Grady’s research into the window as an architectural device. Freed from the burden of representation, Grady’s artworks have been created through problem solving and reductionist techniques of her own invention, her designs relate to the architecture of and around the site of her artworks.
The gallery has been transformed into an immersive exhibition space, with two new site-responsive window installations shown alongside a series of framed screenprints, drawings and works on Perspex. Grady has arranged on a table in the centre of the space, a display of works on paper, diagrams, sketchbooks and perspex models which allow us to gain a deeper understanding of her working practice.
The Foundry Gallery exhibit contemporary art that explores relationships between art and architecture. Established as part of Le Lay Architects the gallery forms the foundation of the practices research into how architectural ideas are conceived and how people engage with buildings and structures.
