Elevator by Julee Latimer- unusual sculptural painting inspired by lockdown
Acrylic on wood
74 x 24 x 4cm


Primary coloured paint packed tightly into coils offers a striking line in a pure white chunky wood box. Simple yet sophisticated. Elevator offers an exciting perspective on contemporary minimalism.

Inspired by Melbourne’s response to growing COVID cases in the inner city tower blocks. Residents were confined within, the only journeys they could take being up and down the elevators.

Elevator continues my interest in an alternative life for paint, one where it is free from the canvas.
The work is made entirely from paint, coiled, and wedged within a channel cut into its wooden frame.
