Physis : Matter and Aliveness

Robyn Webster – 2018

“For surely woods trees and rocks produce the echo which man desires to hear”

Beethoven

“If we do not serve what coheres and endures, we serve what disintegrates and destroys”

(Wendell Berry, from The Art of the Commonplace, Agrarian Essays, 2002)

“We are called to assist the Earth, to heal her wounds, and in the process heal our own”

(Waagari Maatai: inspirational tree planter, Member of the Kenyan Parliament, Nobel Peace Prize winner, woman.)

     ‘Hoopla’

Kara Burrowes –  2018

 

Hoopla looks to de-construct and transform items from the urban landscape, while questioning the importance and relevance of them. Disused layers of posters from obscure parts of the urban environment and discarded advertising billboards are extricated and reworked into another object, almost unrecognisable from their humble beginnings. The resulting pieces are playful, colourful and frivolous while maintaining structure and pattern, making a mockery of the consumerist material of their beginnings. The work is at once both abstract and familiar.
