Supermolet: Orbit, 2010
Digital print on anodized aluminum and MDF
80 x 120 cm
Come join us this friday night (30/4/10) for the opening of:
Multiple will include a range of new works of varying styles and mediums. The largest work in the show, Double-Vision clocks in at just over 4 meters wide and portrays a twisting, turning vision of an urban landscape made by engraving large black laminate panels. Photographic pieces entitled Flatscapes picture Canberra landscapes covered by graphic, geometric shapes that seemingly continue infinitely into the background. Supermolets are a series of printed aluminium panels which show us an imaginary world filled with clusters of strangle impossible buildings –
