STUART Green has created a dramatic entrance to Murdoch University’s new student hub with his latest artwork.

The Coolbinia artist has had a busy year after collaborating with Noongar artist Lance Chadd for the Wirin sculpture at Yagan Square, as well as having his work displayed at the Gold Coast’s 2018 Commonwealth Games and Sculpture by the Sea.

The Murdoch University artwork tilted End – Start – End is colourful piece that runs up the walls and roof of a passageway.

Green said the concept of the artwork was about the idea of crossing a threshold.

“The passageway is a space between two zones so I wanted to give a heightened sense of movement and play around with some energy,” he said.

The artwork is placed near a passageway near Murdoch University’s new student hub.

“It’s a vibrant piece; I was given the opportunity to speak with some colour.

“I spent quite a bit of time designing the artwork, it ripples across the wall and across the ceiling.

“We ended up created 370 fins with 42 separate colours, which were all individually created and positioned correctly on site.”

Green said the feedback he had received about the artwork had been very positive.
