No title / Richard Wright

richard-wright-installation-the-modern-institute-airds-lane-02

Untitled installation of four leaded glass skylights in the ceiling at Aird’s Lane, Modern Institute, Glasgow, by artist and musician Richard Wright, in collaboration with York Glaziers Trust – Britain’s oldest stained glass conservation studio.

Each of the four rectangular skylights house a steel frame comprised of nine individual panels – positioning within the structure specifically handmade glass. Cut at definite angles within an intricately designed lead-matrix to produce a three dimensional effect, the distinctively -textured glass interferes with the light to create a play on perspective through the use of light, reflection and the observer’s viewpoint.
