Embroidered jewels; details from painted landscapes. A deceased Mother’s hair replies to letters from the homeland. Richly intense mark-making with ink and thread tell stories of a life. With repeated soft rubbing, the Woolly bush manifests itself, onto the gallery wall. Domestic objects, made ambiguous, explore configurations of matter that ask questions on mortality. Through objects materialised by the will of hand and mind, five discrete practices are brought together in this exhibition. Subtleties of Obsession probes, by the dissolution of boundaries and through intense focus, the nuances and possibilities of ways of making meaning.
Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Saturday: 10am – 5pm & Monday’s during public and school holidays.
