SHELAGH WAKELY

26 April 2003 - 23 May 2003

Shelagh Wakely deals with the transitory and the immaterial. Her work appears in many forms including traces, odours, drawings of insects, drops of rain, and imaginary landscapes. She has covered fruits with fine gold, imprisoned others in metal lace cages and equipped others with delicate silk clothing, and watched while they withered and decayed. Time has played an important part in the resolution of these works. Recently Shelagh Wakely has become better known for her architectural commissions. In Oct 03 she produced a 60,000 piece glass mosaic which was unveiled for the Albert Hall's new porch.
