While completing a masters of architecture several years earlier I begun practicing ceramics and developing an understanding of clay’s material properties. While studying both disciplines my interests focused toward the movement of an idea, it’s translation from the mind through to the hands, forming sketches toward a physical object.
‘hand building’ is an installation continuing this observation, including forms strongly influenced by man-made structures observed while visiting Ballarat in early 2018. In doing so I aim to uncover unique spatial concepts through the clay medium, providing a sculptural representation of the local architecture focused on shape and form.
These series of sculptures are part of the
2018 Biennale of Australia Art (BOAA)
exhibited at Backspace Gallery, Ballarat
between 21 September - 6 November 2018
