Preparing for The Portraits of Rhiwbina Exhibition @ The Art Workshop
Carpenter Darren Barnes made sure all back batons were perfectly in-line ready to hang the dibond, lightjet images when they arrived. This was the most time consuming process. I had originally measured the wall and drew up a plan for how I wanted them to hang. The first idea was to display them equal distances apart but the mock-up made it clear the viewer had no break. Instead I used 3 panels with 12 images in each across the main wall. This would break up the display which would be easier on the eye. The adjacent walls would follow the line of the middle tier as room was required to stick the Portraits of Rhiwbina text above.
The trick to making this an easier process is to draw up a rough sketch, this will make it clear of the formation before any holes are drilled. There is no way back from there without making a mess!
