Utilising structural theory born out of the eco movement of the 1960’s and Lloyd Kahn’s geodesic dome designs, Mike Inglis creates an architectural mix media assemblage for the 2016 Cupar Arts Festival. The installation combines traditional materials with new print making technologies; laser engraved acrylic panels and spray painting complete this three dimensional “print”.
This site specific environmental intervention is situated in the green space of Cupar’s riverside park within a ring of sentinel trees. The construction explores ideas based around visual perception, codes of abstraction and versions of reality, seeking links with diverse theories which surround epileptic visual auras, bioenergetics and sacred geometries.
In his work, Mike investigates the links between public art and ‘outsider’ art. He enjoys making publicly situated art that explores transitional spaces, as well as producing work for more traditional gallery spaces.
Mike will give an Artist’s Talk, ‘In the realm of waking dreams’ on Tuesday, June 21 at 2pm at the Festival Hub.
