WHITE an exhibition by LISA MADIGAN . AEDAN HARRIS . NATASHA MARSHALL
The opening night was spectacular, a beautiful crowd & a lovely synergy between us three artists, doing what we do, working in quite separate mediums, but finding a beautiful thread & union with our works, painting, ceramics & assemblage
WHITE is the culmination of meditative hours spent flitting between the space of here & eternity. Flickering moments. Contemplation of matter & the sublimation of such. A dive into clarity, into purity through cracking open our existence to sensation. Release. The trandscendsion of a blank canvas, through an expansive truth & the raw expression of it.
KATE ARMSTRONG & LISA MADIGAN
We were thrilled to introduce textile designer KATE ARMSTRONG into our dedicated gallery space at the store in November 2011 with a collaborative exhibition with the works of LISA MADIGAN's salted grace collection.
Using LISA MADIGAN’s own recordings of the “beauty of wear”, Kate augmented forms & tones from within the paintings of the 'salted grace collection' in process of collaboration – where the space, designer, artist & visitors inform the outcome of the original design. A stunning textile installation & a harmonious exhibition ensued.
KATE ARMSTRONG worked with LISA MADIGAN to produce lengths of digital prints, specifically for the exhibition. Beautifully formed, expressive textures & forms within Lisa’s paintings were recorded & augmented into surface patterns, that when hung in the space, harness light & movement to be constantly dynamic and alive. The salted grace collection of luscious oil paintings by LISA MADIGAN hung beside the beautiful & dynamic textile installation of KATE ARMSTRONG, a stunning synergy, with the two work styles to be experienced in harmony.
Statements by the designer & artist on their respective work...
"The Living Room is a tangible, generative print system which attempts to highlight the value of aged, worn mementos; re-connecting users with makers. By designing experience into products, emotional connections precede the rational; a stronger bond is formed. Perhaps if we connected more fully emotionally with our built environment, we wouldn’t acquire so much waste." KATE ARMSTRONG
"I am concerned with not only what surrounds us but also what resides within. Painting intuitively, expressively, it’s an immediate act of communication, push and pull, a dynamic sensibility, momentum and meditation if you will, between myself and the canvas. Deeply inspired by and drawn from nature, drawn from within, teetering on the edge of the tactile, moving toward the esoteric, blurring those boundaries. The raw, the tangible, the sensual, the grand, the ethereal, the essence.
This collection of salted grace is as it’s name implies, beauty through texture and tooth, softness from strength, sensibility from bold gestures and fervent momentum, moving towards a sense of grace. The sweet is that much sweeter once you’ve tasted a little salt..." LISA MADIGAN
