Paths





Digital collage, vector-based illustration.

This digital work is based on hand drawn sketches made in preparation for new paintings.

Starting with the restriction of a regular format (rectangle), the line moves within, rebounding from edge to edge. Rotational symmetry is maintained through the mirrored movements of two lines with opposite staring points, that meet, and unite in the middle.

The patterned surface of the ground, follows from my work with timber, but here considers other coloured possibilities.

FORM AND FOLD




FORM AND FOLD is the second exhibition of collaborative work between Ciaran Begley, Consuelo Cavaniglia, and myself. 

Continuing from our previous exhibition TURN / FOLD / FLIP of abstract structures and drawings that centred on the idea of the book, we have expanded the unfolding page to the scale of standard hardware plywood boards. These large scale elements have been directly painted onto with sprayed gradients and geometric line work. These boards are then cut and folded with hinges to become free standing, self-supported sculptural elements that interact with colour gradients sprayed directly onto the wall, and the architectural space itself.  


FORM AND FOLD will be on show at Verge Gallery, until February 21.

Spatial Order III






Pen, ink and gouache on paper.

The continuation of these geometric figures has become somewhat of an obsession. Many rough drawings are made prior to the identification of a new form. 

These works on paper have stimulated an evolution in my approach to painting.

TURN/ FOLD/ FLIP









TURN/ FOLD/ FLIP is an exhibition of work made in collaboration with Ciaran Begley, and Consuelo Cavaniglia.

The work was developed both individually and in dialogue. Consuelo and I working on painted book-like forms, and Ciaran producing the folded plywood structures.

It has been a great experience working collaboratively, and the outcomes of the work have highlighted our shared concerns of geometry, structure and space.

TURN/ FOLD/ FLIP will be on show until 18/ 10/ 04 at Archive_ 5 Eliza Street Newtown.

Quotients and Remainders


Ink and acrylic on board, with fluorescent gaffing tape.

This painting was made from the offcuts of a previous painting on board, and being a fragment of the larger form, it's edges follow the same underlying geometries.

Working with these offcuts is a process similar to collage, with the pieces there ready to be arranged. This allowed for a sense of spontaneity and experimentation, that resulted in this open ended, unexpected outcome.
