The imposing linear and geometric forms of Lyndal Hargrave’s wall-mounted sculptures are constructed with objects of the everyday. Repetition and familiarity with the material invites the viewer into the work to consider, investigate and reinvestigate the abstract forms.
The series of sewn and embellished drawings by Fiona Fenech explores the transition from childhood to adolescence and the dualism of integrating fantasy with reality. The work draws from the narratives of Seventeenth Century French Contes de Fees (fairy tales) and children’s games that have elements of magical transformation and fantasy as well as violence and the macabre.
