An installation of a 10m painting by Julie Caves suspended in meandering folds in the window of the gallery.

About

Viewable 24 hours a day.

For Lost in the Woods Julie Caves has installed a ten metre long painting of a forest landscape in the window of Stone Space gallery. The form of the painting will meander in the same way as the winding footpaths that crisscross the woods of the nearby Hollow Ponds area of Epping Forest. 

In this woodland Caves is drawn to the sunlight dappling onto the paths through the towering trees and to the reflections on the water. “It’s also a great place for songbirds and to notice the changing seasons.” She has been interested in the area for many years and has spent hours getting lost in these woods. 

Installed to be viewed through the window from the street, the painting will be hung in folds, like curtains that have started to fall from their rods. This reminds us that painting is often used as interior decoration, and sometimes asked to match the drapes. 

The artist will change the configuration of the installation twice during the exhibition. Caves is doing a mont-long takeover of the gallery Instagram, to learn more about the project, follow along.

Caves is following in the footsteps of Sam Gilliam who is credited as the first painter to show a painting loose and off the stretchers with his Draped Paintingsin 1965, which were each hung on a hook on the wall.
