Rosalind Davis is an artist whose central concern is the transformation and reconfiguration of space through multiple disciplines. Beginning with the highly rationalised and objective language of architecture, Davis dis-assembles its geometries to re-create new and multifaceted spaces. The resulting environments probe the relationships between both the physical and psychological aspects of space. Constructed from modular elements her site-specific installations are re-assembled afresh for each exhibition and respond according to the particular architectural conditions of the site, such as scale and light. They are constructed using flexible individual elements such as steel frames, transparent and luminous perspex sheets, thread and monochrome paintings. The steel structures allude in their scale and proportions to windows or doors - portal like openings that allude to the boundaries between spaces. “A transformative piece which looks to fold, shift, disassemble, lean and reconfigure itself with endless possibilities. Rosalind relates this to her earlier paintings of brutalist and modernist buildings as if she's 'taken the structure and pulled it out and turned it into a sculpture'.
