Lightbox commission for Welsh artist at Chapter Arts Centre

Melanie Counsell’s lightbox commission at Chapter Arts Centre.

Chapter Arts Centre is currently displaying a commission by the Cardiff born artist, Melanie Counsell. The commission is part of an exhibition entitled A Fire in the Master’s House is Set.

The work itself is a lightbox commission placed in the windows at the front of Chapter. The violet wash of colour casts a hue into the interior of the centre, establishing a mood of anticipation which is reflected in the internal gallery exhibition. It also features an image of a hand holding two tablets, about which the purpose is unknown.

As an internationally renowned artist, Melanie has won several awards, including The Arts Foundation Award, and displays work worldwide. The exhibition and Melanie’s commission will be at Chapter Arts Centre until 31 January 2012.
