Taking Up Space. Without Taking Up Space This solo exhibition in Sydney, was part of the Danks Street Art Complex Gala Opening with eight galleries showing only Sculpture for the month of January 2012
These new works explore line, form and sensuous movement, using minimal positive space to create enigmatic imagery that conjures thought from deep within the viewers subconscious. ‘Playing’ in an intuitive way, sketching in three dimensions, and with a whimsical appearance at first glance, the Artist seeks to encourage the audience to use their experiences to explore and ‘Tell Their Story’ with assistance from these ambiguous works. The concept of ‘Taking Up Space, Without Taking Up Space’, has fascinated the Sculptor for many years. Negative space is as important as the positive, and these ‘Drawings’ exist as a testimony to the technique. The Artist believes that drawing is the highest art-form that an artist can pursue, and drawing in three dimension, raises the bar.
The names given to the works are influenced by exotic and rarely seen ‘Dream Catchers’, a romantic and important notion for encouraging creativity and well being.
The works are made from 316 marine grade Stainless Steel, Australian Hardwood and Copper with heights between 2 meters and 2.5 meters weight apron 30 kg each.
