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.
Pass It On is a group exhibition at Verge Gallery, featuring work from Sydney College of the Arts students and alumni. The exhibition will include Anna McMahon, Isobel Parker Philip, Jess Bradford, Richard Kean, THEnguyens, Del Lumanta, Carla Liesch, and myself.
I will be showing my Instagram work Scum Street Scum. A sixty page, limited edition book of the work will be available from the gallery.
Thanks to curator Siån McIntyre for all the help during install.
This geodal structure is a prototype, a continuation of the series through variations in form, and material. The polyhedral shell is constructed from 72 transparent triangles, with the vertices highlighted by a gel that sits between the walls and the lining.
A platonic solid, this icosahedral figure is an entity from the metaphysical realm of the Forms. The abstract structure is an object of the mind revealed, like a shared hallucination. A form constant, one of several geometric lattice patterns, which usually only emerge during altered states of consciousness.
