Usher Gallery 2017 Flag Commission

Louisa Chambers

For the initial flag designs, Louisa began with the lines and shapes on the façade of The Usher Gallery to both visually complement and contrast with the building.
The flags feature bright colourful geometric shapes and patterns with the intention that they can be easily seen from a distance. The shapes are appropriated and reconfigured starting from the ornamentation of the building and motifs that she is currently employing in her most recent paintings. This corresponds with recent contextual investigations in her practice concerning what lies beyond a surface– be that in design, the domestic decoration /ornament and in the marked painted surface. These flags can now be seen on our roof of the Usher Gallery.

Now its your chance to have a go!

If you are 5 to 16 then you can enter our art competition and have a chance to win a valuable prize of artist's materials and see a professionally created version of your own flag flying on our roof.

The competition runs until the end of winter half term, and winners will be chosen by the artist, during the first week of November 2017.

You can also pick up our competition form in the Usher Gallery.
