Free-standing metal sculptures and stained glass assemblages echo the bright opacity of writer and artist Joanna Margaret Paul’s stations of the cross at St Mary’s Star of the Sea in Port Chalmers, Dunedin. They define shape and space while incorporating negative (white) space, and translucency. Like Paul’s typography they intend to elude direct reading by simultaneously referencing and defamiliarizing the subject.

“Looking to the Stations of the Cross, Guy considers the meditated
or framed view, through which she approaches the compositional
definitions in the Stations. She chimes with Paul’s peculiar colour symbolism,
creating cut-out shapes to reference the figures. Literal windows in
Guy’s sculptural pieces echo Paul’s mediated view: the hinged
doors and windows in the poem, and the formal framings of the Stations”.
