The Art House, Drury Lane, Wakefield, West Yorkshire

Entitled Play On (2007) by Robert Dawson

 

It comprises approximately 2,500 tiles and through seven discrete panels spans 28 metres, almost covering the upper area of the building’s façade. In this multi-sectioned mural the original black and white grid of a chessboard goes from small to large with Escher-esque corners, twists, and impossible angles. As with much of his work, the optical illusions have multi- stability, the images move inwards and outwards, being visually neither stable nor totally unstable.
