Artist Chung Eun-Mo’s painting installation Parallel Windows was created in 1993 responding to the building and history of the Irish Museum of Modern Art. The artwork was made specially for the big open room at the top of IMMA’s glass stairs (nowadays it’s the IMMA Shop). The walls of this room were painted a particular shade of deep blue. Then 12 abstract paintings on canvas were placed on the walls. These paintings explore the power and effects of natural light, and use geometric shapes to respond to the patterns cast by light coming through the windows onto the floor and walls.
Next time the sunlight is strong and you are near a window, have a look and see what shapes of shadow and light are being projected onto the walls, the floor, and the ceiling.
