Triangulation was a mural concept put forward to Cains Brewery Development in Liverpool:

Alison Little is a visual artist and writer based in Liverpool, she looks to combine her visual arts and creative writing practice. As an artist, she has worked on numerous commissions from Go Superlambanana’s to Kirby Town Centre Renewal. Her creative endeavours are to include the project management of Rags Boutique: a project to open a disused retail unit as an exhibition space and workshop venue. Working on numerous public art commissions in the North West, the UK and Western Europe. For the Capital of Culture celebrations in Liverpool, she gained two commissions for Super Lambanana to be sited in the colossal Public Arts Trail which was to overtake Liverpool for the celebrations. Her more recent public art commissions are to include work for Kirby Town centre regeneration where she brought the Vikings back to the North West, strong graphical techniques were used for her most recent mural for East Street Arts new location in Garston. In spring of this year, she completed her 6th Super Lambanana commission for the Lip Doctors in Maghull in which she adorned the creature in an array of lips to create: Super Lambanana Lips, her finest to date. In addition to her arts practice, she writes about the Liverpool creative scene, published in Hidden Gems, Art in Liverpool website and her well-read blog.

Through Triangulation she would like to propose a large scale hand painted mural to be sited on the old brewery works. The concept of a triangle to reflect the Northern facing panels of the roof, the triangle supports used within the mezzanine level and the Baltic Triangle where the former brewery is located. The monotone black and white backing surface uses a hand drawn series of triangles to suggest a three-dimensional form. This looks to give an indication of the white space purposed for gallery presentation, the modules which form office and studio space. Individual triangle sections are then rendered with designs which reflect the past and present purpose of the building. The Yellow-backed red ‘C’ comes from the original ‘Cains’  which form office and studio space. Individual triangle sections are then rendered with designs which reflect the past and present purpose of the building. The Yellow-backed red ‘C’ comes from the original ‘Cains’ logo, a well-known symbol of the city. The designers housed within the hub are symbolised by the used of colour charts, the notion of Pantone references being selected is suggested. A free-flowing modernist, sculpted for draws our attention to the Sculptors working for this exciting new arts space. Writers make their presence know by a mass of letters jumbled together to reflect upon the creative approach to creative passage. An old fashioned film real show us the movie makes are in motion, the tattoo artist presents a lizard crawling across its triangular space. A martial artist strikes a pose and the musician make themselves heard with a mass of notes rising to the peak of the three sided form. Finally, the producers give us strategic direction and remind us that creatives need to network through the use of arrows. The mural to be based with white masonry paint, detail to be painted in artists acrylics to be finished with hard wearing, UV proof yacht varnish. The used of cut vinyl as a stencilling medium to be undertaken.
