The Inside Story

13 October 2007 - 10 November 2007

A window installation for Objectspace, The Inside Story is an exploration into formlessness by Dunedin based artist, Blue Black. Comprising a range of expressionistic and organic ceramic forms suspended from a modified wire bed frame, this installation represents the end product of a highly personal and physical making process. 

"I am consumed by the action of doing a job. It is as important, if not more important, than the finished product. The meaning lies in the doing as directed by the materials. In particular, the movement of doing gives me a heightened sense of being in ‘the flow' of things. Taking a risk when making something allows for the element of chance. My work evolves from a position that embraces this element." 
- Blue Black
