’Revolutions’ by Elizabeth Delfs

The Perth-based artist presents her first solo show.

Sculptural works in textiles are the basis for the work of this innovative visual artist.

As artist in residence at the Moores Building Contemporary Art Gallery throughout 2009, Delfs’ new body of work signals a new direction for her interdisciplinary practice.

With works that sit somewhere between garment and the built environment, the artist explores the rendering of space through objects.

“My work questions how we exist as individuals wrapped in cloth and enveloped by buildings.

Notions of gender, beauty and the relationship between dress and building are omnipresent themes in the ethereal work of the unusual sculptress.

“I use malleable materials with textile methodologies to construct sculptures of undulating objects that implode and explode blurring the boundaries between interior and exterior, structure and surface.

“I create sculptures that, like the Mobius strip tend to have a mathematical property of being non-orientable object/surface.

The exhibition runs from 4 March until 16 March 2010.
