'THRESHOLD' BANYULE AWARD FOR WORKS ON PAPER 2019 • Hatch Contemporary Artspace, VIC

29 Aug⁠—19 Oct 2019 • BANYULE AWARD FOR WORKS ON PAPER 'THRESHOLD' • Hatch Contemporary Artspace, VIC

Rain II. 2019, graphite and rain on paper, 174 x 250 cm   

I'm very excited to share the news that one of my recent 'Rain' compositions has been selected as a finalist in the 2019 Banyule Award for Works on Paper. This years theme is 'Threshold'. It will also be my first time exhibiting in Victoria (this feels very overdue and I look forward to catching up with some of my Melbourne peers!).

ABOUTThe Banyule Award for Works on Paper is awarded biennially to an outstanding contemporary work on paper. It is open to all Australian artists. The award is an acquisitive prize, with the winning artwork entered into the Banyule Art Collection.THEME: THRESHOLD 
The world stands at the threshold of change: for better or worse, it's up to us. The theme for the award this year calls on artists to submit artworks that express, explore, advocate, or address current social, cultural, political or environmental issues.

‘Rain II’ captures the erratic language of one of the planet's most valuable and destructive elements at a point in time where humanity is crossing a threshold of climate and ecological sustainability.

The impact of rainfall is captured by applying a graphite solution on paper during storms. The resulting work embodies the various states of a storm—denoting it’s turbulent nature, its clouds, individual drops and the pooling and tracing of topography as it runs over the land. The grid composition alludes to satellite imagery and mapping—tools used to measure, understand, prepare and predict meteorological phenomena.

In using water and carbon (graphite is crystallised carbon), the work invites dialogue around their cultural, economic and ecological implications amidst a precariously changing climate.
