“For Displaced I wanted to hint at a certain atmosphere within the piece without giving away too much, says Mairi. “I hoped that the lonely figure crouched next to a half-filled swimming pool, overshadowed by an ominous structure would give the viewer a sense of isolation and intrigue. But again I hoped that the patterns and pastel colours would balance this to ensure that the feeling of the piece remains on the boundary between unsettling and peaceful.
“I made Vacant and Displaced together. For a long time, I had an idea in my mind of two pieces that would work side by side. The back and white grids were the starting point for these works. From there I made sketches in my notebook of colours that would compliment each other and compositions that would allow the pieces to mirror one another. I kept adding and removing elements until I felt that the images worked and when one piece was drying or I was unsure where to go next I would work on the other and vice versa. When I felt that the surface was complete I thought it was time to start adding more collage elements that would give the piece a sense of place and narrative.”
