Light Up The Night

Artist Elysha Rei (Gould) has reinterpreted her large scale-paper cut works into a positive and negative pattern play that illuminates the street at night. These permanent lightboxes provide a changing display of contemporary art adding to the character of Eagle Lane.

The Koi carp is a recurring motif in Rei’s work and represents the growth of her arts practice. Her previous explorations using this motif are paper-cuts in monochrome, here the Koi is presented in an array of vibrant colours.

Work: Elysha Rei (Gould), Not so Koi, 2016.

Materials: Digital print on translucent film.
