NEW WORKS 1999–2000
Galerie Düsseldorf, Perth

Purist Modernism’s pejorative branding of ornament as a marginal supplement to the essential core of Western art is well documented. The re-evaluation of the decorative within contemporary theory and aesthetics is relatively recent and it is within this more positive discursive context that I focus my analysis on the complexity and mutable nature of the ornamental register.

Photographer: Robert Frith, Acorn, unless otherwise stated.
