Image Reflection - 'White Cube Reliance' / by Ally McGinn

This piece is singularly focussed on the idea of balance and reliance.


The wood is an offcut from a painting stretcher, destined for recycling. Reclaimed early.

The small stack is made of paint chips, the grey paint from the floor (an association that is unimportant in this case).

The small white cube is ‘white tack’ shaped and pressed to adhere to the wall and the wood. Without it there would be no balance.

It is an enforced balance, and yet a stable one. Re-enforced.
