This work is the result of an intensive project of documentation and reflection made whilst travelling in Paris and London. The patterns, shapes, forms and aesthetics of this body of work have responded to specific architectural details witnessed and collected while moving through these cities. In the multiple overlays and combinations of these patterns, the artist seeks to represent the vast and immeasurable stimuli that confront us when travelling through an urban environment.
This project specifically responds to the experience of being in a city that is unfamiliar or new, and the heightened perception of architecture and space that such a condition permits.
This project was completed over the course of a residency at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris, in the Art Gallery of New South Wales' Moya Dyring Memorial studio. It was supported by the UNSW Art & Design Student Travel Grant and the Dyason Bequest.
