'Home' was a solo show that took place in Canberra at the Gallery of Small Things. The show was made entirely in miniature and features a series of sculptures as well as wall hangings. ‘Home’ aimed to discover a utopian world filled with abstract miniature dwellings and impossible architecture. Each sculpture offered a gateway to a different world while also playing with scale, geometry, and form.
Artist statement from HOME
Objects are important in helping us tell stories. They offer an opportunity to use something other than words to make sense of the world around us. This collection invites the viewer to use their imagination to interpret and understand each piece. What world does this miniature dwelling belong to? Who lives here? Who calls this place home?
‘Home’ imagines a utopian world filled with abstract miniature dwellings and impossible architecture. Each piece aims to offer a small gateway to a different world while also playing with scale, geometry, and form.
Each part of the collection has been crafted by hand using a variety of different clays and a mixture of wheel and hand-building techniques have been used to construct each piece. Working in small scale has been a challenging, yet rewarding experience which has allowed me to explore new silhouettes and scales. Developing this collection has offered the opportunity to delve deeper into the mystery of each form and the story behind them. It is my hope that while viewing the collection, viewers can join me in dreaming up their own narrative for each utopian dwelling and who calls this place home.
