Introducing…Dan Coopey

Dotted around Gallery 1, Dan Coopey’s submission, Untitled (Tiffany) adds a slightly different element to EMERGENCY5.

Dan’s work uses mirrors which have been modified, their surfaces altered to reveal what it takes to change a piece of glass into a reflective object, how an everyday material is elevated by the addition of layers of metallic paint. In this way Untitled (Tiffany) allows the viewer to encounter ‘a manipulation of their image and immediate space.’

In Dan’s words ‘The dual reflective-transparent surfaces of the angled panes creates a distortion and sense of displacement; a disorientation of a material manufactured specifically to mimic and frame our sense of place.’
