Art Gallery

One of our second year studio projects was to design an art gallery for a selected artist and their work. I chose Lisa Reihana and her Granite Portraits. Lisa Reihana's Granite Portraits replicate old photographs of Maori tupuna using present day technology and models. I based my project around materials and how they can represent a fusion between past and present.
