The Evocative Object - 6 Nov to 6 Dec 2020

Once I began to consider everything as being of potential interest, objects released latent layers of value.”
                                                                                                                                                             - Alain de Botton


We are four visual artist friends who met at Adelaide College of the Arts and who continue to engage in and discuss respective art practices and, at times, collaborate and exhibit together. 


This exhibition was formed through an idea exchange in regards to the appropriate selection of a common theme or subject matter which we could all embrace. This led to an exploration of the notion of the significance of the everyday object, the intrinsic values it holds and what relationship exists between the object and owner.


Generally we consider objects as useful or aesthetic, as necessities or vain indulgences. Further, objects can serve as a marker for an emotional connection or as provocations to thought. Musing on the concept of object curation, we reflect on traditional still life works and expand our approach to create work that sits in a contemporary realm.


This new body of work explores the notion of what it is that makes an object evocative and how this can be communicated to an audience.


Objects are isolated, researched and documented, exploring unique concerns. Our approaches are individual and we invite the viewer to make connections.
