6 September – 26 October 2012
Silent Distortions is a solo exhibition by Australian artist Tane Andrews, containing a series of new drawings and sculptural works that consider a moment in nature that is neither rising nor falling; a time that is perfectly still.
In the exhibition Andrews’ focuses specifically on the form of the jellyfish, a creature whose unique attributes provide a rich source of inspiration for these meditative works. These ancient ambiguous forms never cease growing and their languid, yet quiet poise evoke stillness. Each of the drawings produced utilise the artist’s signature style of stippling, a labour intensive method where multiple dots and shading are used to create pattern, shape and form. Andrews also develops a number of sculptural works that involve manipulating paper, laser cutting and glass. The exhibition creates a space in which audiences can contemplate and engage with these Silent Distortions.
