The language of architectural form influences Richard Whiteley’s work, as he is most interested in the tension and ambiguity between what is manmade and what is organic. He sees parallels between bodies and buildings and through the interplay of positive and negative space, which alludes to personal and psychological space.
“The works are built from the inside out; voids are ordered first and external structures are built to encapsulate these spaces. The works explore spaceusing glass as a substrate activated by light. The material qualities of glass transparency and translucency are the agents within the work that create the dialogue between voids and solids.”
