I’m experimenting with the background colour which will be sitting about 12mm behind the surface. It will also act as a structural base for the box frame. In its electrified state helium is a pale peach to orange colour but when it burns it becomes a blue colour. Even though it will only appear through the drill holes, getting the right shade of blue that complements the orange values is going to be the key. The top image above is on Perspex Fluorescent Neptune Blue. The bottom image is on Perspex Frost Sapphire Blue.

Thanks to Jacqueline Mitchell at Art Logic , a rental (and sales) service supporting local South Australian artists, this painting (MA#5) is hanging in the Chairman’s office at 1414 Degrees for the next six months.
1414 Degrees’ is a thermal-based energy storage system. What makes it unique is that it is clean, scalable, sustainable and therefore unlike any other energy storage system in the world. This breakthrough technology is set to disrupt energy storage globally because it provides energy in the form most used in the world – heat. So, I’m thrilled that they’ve selected my work.
