The University of Gibraltar’s open plan atrium space is now more colourful thanks to emerging local artist, Stephanie Yeo. The piece, titled, ‘Perception’, consists of colourful geometric shapes which display overlapping shadows across walls and surfaces.
Stephanie Yeo is an emerging, mixed-media artist who predominantly focuses on producing large-scale light installations. Her current work consists of colourful geometric shapes, constructed with steel and Perspex, which display overlapping shadows across walls and surfaces. She hopes to create an atmosphere of wonder within her art and aspires to encourage viewers to interact with the work on a contemplative level.
The properties of light have always been of interest to her; how it can be manipulated (on its own or through materials) to form illusions and shadows, always allowing for different perspectives to be seen or felt. This curiosity enabled her to develop work that plays with the idea of space, perception and interactivity.
