Living in the material world
MetadataShow full item record
Painting and Installation as Communicator and Transmitter of experience that reflects the historical uncertainty of time and place. This research investigates how painting can be experienced as an ‘extended’ practice through installed groups and configurations. The current focus of this work is an exploration of modernist architectural legacies as the post-WW2 utopian vision of civic, municipal and social progress. The work draws upon the materiality of the built environment and its abstract displacement through art as a memory of forms reimagined as a parallel universe. In proposing a simulacrum the research questions our received notion of authenticity in a world constructed through imperial economies of power that contribute to national/cultural/post-colonial identity made manifest through art and architecture.
