Depicting an abstract form of the perfect vacation destination, artist Fiona Curran uses multimedia painting art installations to explore the relationship between visuals and spatial distance.
Not just paintings on the wall, Curran's installations involve the viewer by taking up part of the space in which they stand. Clusters of canvasses and other colored materials act as triggers to relay memories or emotions associated with those visuals. Some assemblages feature palm trees and scenic views, a literal depiction that gives viewers a chance to escape into a mental holiday if they are so inclined. Others are more obscure and only hint at structures and settings.
The use of painting art installations makes each work more of a physical and visual experience.
