Paintings and wall work


2015


In India the everyday construction of Rangoli has a generative characteristic and the Vastupurusamandala is thought to be a generative source in Hindu architecture, particularly for temples. Although the generative approach to making art works might appear rational, the structure allows for an extra-rational engagement, much in the same way that prayer connects pattern, repetition and experience

The works in this exhibition explore the relationship between consciousness and materiality and the wall work evokes a sense of space that is both close and immense and suggestive of time. The viewer is invited to participate in a dynamic through the spatial relationships and the tension between the second and third dimensions. This exhibition was influenced by the use of Rangoli by local women, two of whom created work on the gallery floor.
