Item details

Mary Temple's Morning Light, West Wall subtly shifts the commuter's perception of the subway station by creating a soft canopy of light and shade that floods the wall of the west stair leading up to the southbound platform of Neck Rd. The standard wall tile has been tinted, transitioning from rectangular shapes to smaller angular shapes to form an elaborate fractured mosaic. On closer inspection, viewers discover that the tiles are hand-painted in ceramic glazes. This slow reveal of the image was designed by the artist, to be discovered over time, on repeated viewing, as commuters catch a glimpse of perpetual morning light.
"Vigorous thought keeps pace with the sun, the day is a perpetual morning". The artwork may not be immediately noticed as it subtly plays with the viewer's perception of the space, and will lead to ongoing discovery and enjoyment as its mysteries are revealed.
