Pattern Recognition

BY Troy Innocent | 16-Mar-2017
For this exhibition, Innocent places agency in the hands of the viewer, challenging the static nature of sculptural forms. Through the use of an augmented reality application, the viewer reveals layers of animation, information and music, coded within the geometric language of Innocent’s works. Innocent applies strategies of pattern recognition to psychogeographic abstractions – spatial maps of cities Innocent has walked, folded in time and space. Recent solo exhibitions see Innocent combine digital innovation, specifically coding, with sculptural forms and geometric abstraction. These exhibitions include Double Abstraction (2016), Five Walls Projects, Melbourne and New Abstraction (2015), Anna Pappas Gallery, Melbourne.

Partial coherence

BY Andrea Eckersley | 16-Mar-2017
Through recasting traditional relationships with painterly practice, Partial coherence presents a space within which the canvas, the wall, light and the body are implicated in the realisation and experience of an artwork. Alongside painterly works, Eckersley utilises light installations, bronze sculptures, constructed shelving and garment making, in order to position surfaces, affect and material as uniquely interrelated concepts. Eckersley is a lecturer in Fashion Design, at RMIT University and received a PhD in Fine Arts (Painting) from Monash University in 2016.
