Final Sketchup: Stairs from Rosalie Gascoigne's Studio up to Exhibition Space.
These Stairs significantly relate to Gascoigne's art practice and materiality. These stairs have been constructed through a process of repetition and patterning. The recycled wood that these stairs have been constructed from also links to Gascoigne's use of recycled materials in her work conveying a concern for the environment and a practice of the green movement. These Stairs can be viewed as a "collection" similar to Gascoigne's constant collection of wood, iron, wire, feathers, yellow retro road signs and other industrial debris. These stairs provide the artist with an interesting way to transport her work up to the exhibition space whilst holding symbolic meaning.
