1992-1994 - Digitisation

During the late 80s Shelagh Cluett had begun to make work on the computer, influenced by her long-term partner, the lighting engineer Mick Marshall. She started using computerised images of her own work to create digital images on an early Amiga Commodore. Marshall’s death in 1993, after a long illness, affected Cluett’s artistic production. Cluett now worked on stone slabs, developing the vocabulary of architectural imagery she had accumulated whilst travelling throughout Asia. She transferred the silhouettes of temple porticoes and footprint plans of religious buildings on to the surface of polished stone using paint, moulded clay or gesso to create iconic wall sculptures.
