Artwork Description

Oil on linen, ready to hang.

Signed on the back.

'Everything is an event on the skin' – Hermann von Helmholtz.

My curved canvases are worked on as three dimensional objects. However, rather than considering the interplay between solid and space as a sculpturist does, my forethought is to return to the 'flat two dimensional picture plane’. Working in this way creates reciprocal and distinct marks as one expression. An aesthetic that is only possible through the advent of a curve. So when finally, we do observe it on a two dimensional flattened picture plane (the switch from 3D to 2D), a different aesthetic emerges.

Inspired by current scientific understanding of our universe and the way nature itself could be. This work aims to reflect a truth about the human condition — that we are tied to a two dimensional universe yet entangled with all its probabilities in the vastness of infinite space.

This painting can be hung as a portrait or landscape. Included are wires to hang either way.

A sheet of patinated copper covered in oil paint and wax. The patina shapes the form of a tree trunk, with impressions or depressions created throughout its length by both large and small drill holes. The connected small holes describe the Scribbly Gum moth larvae feeding trails.A sheet of patinated copper covered in oil and wax.
