Austin’s artistic practice is driven by his feeling for materials, his interest in perception and optical effects, and his desire to activate space.

In selecting artworks for the exhibition with curator Samantha Littley, Austin reacquainted himself with concepts that he had explored earlier in his career.

“Re-examining the work was a revealing process – I was reminded of ideas that I may have let go a little early in my excitement to try out new things – some that I am now revisiting with a new perspective and greater maturity,” Austin said.

“The exhibition has allowed me to see that, over the course of 20 years, I have developed emotionally, conceptually and in the practical skills that I have at my disposal.”

The Space Between Us brings together more than 60 sculptures and works on paper from public and private collections that reveal Austin’s abiding delight in pattern and perception.
