Molecular
2015

In this series Molecular, an arrangement of individually framed works composed of painted foam (in multi-coloured variation) draws on the continuing narrative questioning the dimensional potentiality of an object. From a side perspective, the surface structured Plexiglas produces an almost architectural facade. By obstructing the viewer from perceiving the layer / content beneath, an immediate tension manifests between viewer and the work itself, and invites the viewer to participate and interact further while questioning human behaviour, perception, and logic.

The viewer's motion brings to life the hidden context within the work, yet allows for an independent narrative to emerge. Although each piece shares a similar visual reference to each other on the grid-like formation, subtle differences begin to surface and distortions become obvious. Patterns, once recognisable, become blurred and attributes such as form, colour, pigment density become intangible. By re-representing mass-produced materials, which, in turn, become identifiable modular objects (that are arranged in a site-specific installation) enable the viewer to explore how pre-perceived notions are embedded in our psyche in relation to our awareness of objects.
