July : ‘Dollop’ Constance ARI, Hobart (TAS)

Throughout July 2014 I presented my first interstate work at Constance ARI titled ‘Dollop’. This site specific video installation was an investigation into ideas I have been playing with in the studio in preparation for a large solo show at the Contemporary Art Center of South Australia in December. ‘Dollop’ explored my ongoing interest in how light might combine with objects and sculptural forms to transform the mundane into mesmermizing, imitating or subtly referencing spectacle in nature with ordinary things from the supermarket and hardware shop. This series of work is inspired by fantastical ideas of tacky Christmas magic caves, crystal castles and natural phenomena such as neon glow worm goo, the Lechuguilla Cave chandelier ballroom and the rainbow illuminated 180 million year-old cave located in Guilin, China. ‘Dollop’ investigates how we see light, colour and liquescent moving imagery against static, clunky handmade objects and forms. This video installation blends ideas of liquid/solid, natural/artificial, movement/stillness, light/dark and hi-fi/low-fi.
