'Our Designs on Water: Using water as both image and matter I aim to create a dialogue between the concepts of fluidity and solidity. I explore the interplay between control and dissolution as a way towards abstraction as a meditative and poetic practice. Through material thinking and the diffused lens of overlapping Asian and Western painting practices, I utilise the artists’ materials and technologies from both cultures to bring new understandings of abstraction and the poetic through a body of wall installations, predominantly works on paper, supported by digital media.'

Paper Works III
We are pleased to present you with the exhibition catalogue for Paper Works III, on view at the Gallery until Saturday 2 May.
The third edition of Paper Works III again features artists working with paper as a material in innovative ways; from the origami-like folding, present in the work of Glen Clarke, Liz Shreeve, and Lisa Giles to the incredibly delicate and intricate hand cut paper from Louise Morgan, Nicola Moss, and Mylyn Nguyen. Helen Mueller's 'earthen wear', melds printmaking with molded vessels, Bettina Hill's 'The Shape of Paper, arcs and lines', features strips of paper woven into a bulbous form, and Elizabeth Willing uses processed cheese to sculpt a single sheet of paper through natural processes of decomposition.
