CLIENT: DEPARTMENT OF EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT

GLENORCHY POLICE STATION

ARTIST STATEMENT

‘Wisp’ is a public artwork commissioned by the Tasmanian Government Art Site Scheme for the Department of Emergency Management (DPEM). The Tasmanian Police Force wanted a series of artworks that were functional and calming for the community and staff. The artworks were required to be vandal resistant, sturdy and durable as the allocated areas were subject to highly emotional situations and heavy wear & tear. The brief also required that the main artworks in the foyer and reception areas created a calming environment for people who may have to wait for loved ones, family or friends. Colour theory defined the final colour selections for their effect on the human mind and emotions. Abstract forms were deliberately chosen to remove the intellect from the experience, as the artworks themselves defy any logical analysis. Instead offering the viewer an opportunity to be calmed and soothed by the artworks in a potentially emotional environment.
