2D or Not 2D? - Opening Night
Yoshi Takahashi, Sarah Fitzgerald, Jan Handel & Amber Hearn
31 October, 2015
Yoshi Takahashi is a Sydney based artist who works with both two and three-dimensional forms.
The works in this group show reflect his artistic history and his current state as an artist who is moving beyond recognized boundaries. All of his works in this show are the result of chance and system. Chance limits the control over the decision of colour and shape choice.
The work that Sarah Fitzgerald has made for this exhibition amounts to a collection of painted objects, made specifically for this gallery space. This body of work is designed to respond to the physical aspects of the room, the window, the corner, the wall, are all architectural elements that support the objects in both a physical and conceptual way. The work also makes use of signs that we recognise as part of a universal language. In an attempt to create a conversation, Sarah uses these signs as we might in a text message, in a minimal way that suggests a lot with very little.
Jan Handel is a Sydney–based artist whose practice centres on painting and drawing.
Materials, the physicality of process, the illusion (or denial) of space and the way in which these can be manipulated to trigger the memory of a place or intangible experience form the basis of her work, and allow the possibility of communicating ideas that have no physical form.
Amber Hearn is a cross disciplinary Sydney based artist whose work ranges from painting to sculpture and installation.
Working with both the two dimensional and three dimensional planes, Amber incorporates a strong element of play within her work, inviting interaction from the viewer within the space that it inhabits.
Amber explores elements such as light, shadow, scale, colour and form through her process. She sees this involvement and connection with her process as a way to actively and meditatively engage with each moment in a playful way.
