About

SO-HA AU uses dressmaking patterns to map the interior space unoccupied by the clothed body, to explore representations of absence/presence. Deconstructing the shapes, like displaced limbs. Reconstructing them again, almost as flat plans for referencing an unoccupied, internal space of the absent and displaced. CATHERINE HUGHES creates detailed paintings; re-examing mundane surroundings, and overlooked objects that have become invisible through over familiarity. She re-evaluates the undervalued by privileging these objects and scenes to careful investigations through painting. These objects become loaded with meaning hinting at notions of value, waste and excess. ANDREW HUMBER makes use of domestic furniture to create a moving environment. Collected objects are arranged in alternative compositions; where a physical exchange is orchestrated in a live event between object and viewer. Actions determine reaction with myriad outcomes, running their path in real time and real space. Science, Engineering and Art merge to provide an alternative experience; where seemingly contradictory ways to apprehend the world are brought together. KELLY RATHFORD creates images that allude to things, which are not necessarily comfortable, easy or tasteful. Her enthusiasm for colour, humour and the pictures drawn by young children, competes with a contrasting interest in crime, and the fascination it holds on society. Her drawings and paintings are attempts to create an urban playground inhabited by simply drawn characters. On the surface, the simple images may bring a smile or sigh to one's face, but look a little longer and see, that maybe, something is not quite right.
