Graphicality Catalogue

artist statementThe making of a single line which immediately implies the divide between ground and ‘not-ground’ and the ontological contrast of mark and non-mark, is where intent resides and the experience of mark-making begins. The line, the mark, the scrawl, the scratch, the grapheme, the trace, the scribble, the drawing, the graphic; at once delineated and designed, spontaneous and considered.Graphicality is evoked within this body of work as a quality of line, an explicitly diagrammatic, painted, written, formed, designed and drawn mark. These works refers to that graphical line and the shapes circumscribed and explored by it – particularly the rhizome.In…

Out of Hand Exhbition Catalogue

13 – 24 August 2013 at The Depot Gallery, 2 Danks Street, Waterloo NSW. Out of Hand is an exhibition of painting and sculptural works by a group of artists who share a discursive interest in continuing the language and experience of contemporary Abstract art.The paradoxical nature of relationships that have arisen through the process of collaboration resist a homogenised reading in this instance and deliver a body of work that shares a visual vocabulary, particular to the aesthetics of Abstraction. As a process and vehicle of representation, Out of Hand explores a ‘glocal’ rethinking of modernism through a collective response to the role of the author and the spatial relationships that take place in the traditional sphere of reception, the gallery.These…
