DESCRIPTION

Material World celebrates the physicality of art and illustrates what happens when we make art in an unstable, even magical place of change and transformation.

This show is as much about the process of making art as it is about the materials used to make it. It demonstrates that creative freedom can be found within rules and methodologies and that working with a single, unconventional material can produce unexpected results.  At the same time Material World also explores complexity and the consequences of bringing different materials into dialogue with one another.

Eleven artists have joined forces to create the paintings, photos, sculptures, assemblages, installations and prints that make up Material World.  For all these artists engagement with materials forms a central part of artistic practice: materials and processes fire their imaginations and fuel their vision of what is possible.
