The invention of Nothingness No.2b

The invention of Nothingness No.2b (2012/13)

Floodlight + emulsion paint on wooden false wall + timer switch (The floodlight goes out every 2 minutes and the gallery light comes on for 1.5 seconds)

Variable size (panels to fit wall)

Two versions of the piece, with 1” rings of paint graded from black through to white were made for the John Moores Painting prize but not viewed since it was considered “too conceptual”, though I consider it very visual (and it required a lot of work, shifting the greys)
