Clay Intersections at the Australian Design Centre, Sydney, Australia.
Curator Cath Fogarty presented the work of eight contemporary makers who take a range of innovative approaches to making and working with clay.
between going and staying, 2017
Intrigued by the possibility of one thing becoming another, and images or objects on the border between legibility and abstraction, I make visual puzzles. My forms and surfaces collapse elements from the physical, remembered, and imagined worlds into one another – hints of a roofline or a table can be partly teased out, but remain ambiguous. These are drawings about perception, in which my aim is to capture or even create a feeling of uncertainty, a situation which is irresolvable.
In this series, it is the end of autumn, at dusk. It is the moment of Octavio Paz’s poem ‘Between Going and Staying’ where “all is visible and all elusive”. My eye drifts, the mind sifts, and memories become objects.
