Shelby Farmer: Tracing Space
August 2, 2014 @ 2:00 pm - August 26, 2014 @ 3:00 pm
Opening in the Vernacular Lounge
Saturday 2 August 2 – 3.30pm
Shelby Farmer is a Visual Arts graduate from AUT University. Her artistic practice is a balance of eclectic media; sculpture and painting, interacting to traverse the space between two-dimensional and three-dimensional mediums to enhance the viewer’s perception of space.
Her recent sculptural work explores the paradox of perceived space and how the viewer negotiates the possibilities of spatial experience. This idea has also been translated into her paintings dealing with a similar aesthetic. Inspired by architectural constructs and conceptual drawings, the use of projected light acts as a physical material and is present within the space mimicking that of digital design and 3d modelling. The work in Tracing Space forces the consolidation of the second and third dimensions and perceived dimensions of the human mind and attempts to manipulate perceived space and spark curiosity and a fresh awareness of how space reveals itself.
