Reverse Polarity

 

Exhibited in Sauðárkrókur- Iceland, Artspace Mackay, Sunshine Coast Art Gallery, Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Art and Ryan Renshaw Gallery window space- Fortitude Valley Brisbane.

Surrounded by a breathtaking landscape and an art studio at Nes (Artist Residency in Skagaströnd, which is a small town in North West Iceland) which was not only a sanctuary from the winter storms but a palimpsest of marks and memory, Reverse Polarity is a body of work subconsciously created by combining humanity and environment.  The man-made marks an equivalent to the dynamic weather in a mythical landscape that evokes both the beauty and fragility of our ever-changing world. The work not only highlights contemporary environmental issues such as climate change, arctic ice melts and rising sea levels but conveys much about the complexities of experience today, involving as it does, memories, dreams and sensations.
