Signs of Wear
Exhibited at Jam Factory Contemporary Craft and Design and the 2010 JMGA Conference held in Perth WA.
Wandering through a city I know so well, I experience my surroundings as sensations of colour, texture, and an abundance of multiples. Curious of what the buildings can tell me I search for evidence of what is lost, what survives, and what has changed. Attempts to hide the past are often evident in layers of coloured paint and signs of wear, of surfaces peeling and eroding away revealing brief moments in time, a glimpse of a former life
Commonly used materials coupled with forms suggestive of this environment, this work alludes to the unearthed histories and memories imbedded in this place.
