Turner Prize winner Richard Wright was commissioned by the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art to make a permanent painting in the west stairwell of their building for the Edinburgh Art Festival 2010.
The Work is composed of a flower-like motif, hand painted and repeated thousands of times to dizzying effect. The orientation, size, and alignment of the motif changes according to its placement on the complex three-dimentional structure of the architecture, producing a spectacular canopy above the viewer.Commissioned by the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.
