7 Feb- 3 May 2019 | Opening 6-8pm 12 Feb, all welcome
During my residency at ATW in 2018 I explored tapestry techniques as a method for contemporary drawing and developed practice-based research around the concept of Impermanence. From this base, I created a series of new works that navigate architectural structures via repetition and transient pattern.
Working intuitively to direct the process, vibrant pattern is revealed from a foundation of monochromatic lines. Each shift of direction these horizontal wefts take culminates in an optical pattern, disrupting the linear surface of the drawing. As these patterns pulse ephemerally atop the solid black and white surface, they allow an in-between space to come forth and be perceived as an entity.
I’ll be showing a series of work that resulted from this residency alongside other Artists in residence from 2018.
15 & 17 Jan 2019 | Unfolding Repetition: Summer School Workshops
Masterclass participants will gain rare insights into the exhibition development, design and presentation as they hear directly from the creative team at the NGV, onsite. Academics will speak about the challenges of traversing time and translating Escher’s now historic imagined spaces into tangible experiences in the contemporary world. Artist led workshops will extend this immersive experience by challenging participants to experience Escher’s world through hands-on 2-D and 3-D creative production inspired by Nendo.
