NIGHT GARDEN STUDIO EXHIBITION 2020
Night Garden: A series of illuminated works embodying affective and sensorial notions of aesthetics.

Industry Collaborators: Artcom Fabrication; Perth Wood School; Vince Austin.
The artist would like to acknowledge the support of the following people: Clemens (Clancy) Augenstein; Joshua Webb; Milton Andrews, Square Peg Design; Ric Chaney; Caroline Di Costa, CDC Design; Claire Gordon, Considerate Design; Alison Archer; Katrina Montaut; Kris and Jo Gaunt.

The following quote in an essay by Andrea Branzi summarizes my approach to making:

It appears that one of the characteristics of this generation after God is its sensorial approach to reality, based not on a structural knowledge, of history or culture of the world, but on the taste, smell, touch and sound of culture….This is simply a physical (not a metaphysical) approach to the objects that surround us.

Ref: Branzi, A., from Design After God (and Jelly Baby Poetics), in: The Quality Crisis, 1996 (Artsbook).

The pieces in this exhibition extend beyond their physical presence as their visual porosity interplays with the materiality of light. They are intended as small-scale versions of potential larger-scale opportunities.
In an attempt to reduce waste from the fabrication process, the works also give birth to oddly-shaped offspring made from off-cuts to become new sensory agglomerations: progenies in their own right.

All Artworks 2019– 2020
