Recent works for coming show next year. Pen and Ink. Meditations on Geometry.
Older work from past shows in the same vein. Above are extensions from this body of work.
The above right stencil of paint on black paper was the brand logo used for 2008 show. It was used on all promotional material including advertising graphics in Art Almanac circulated internationally.
This guitar was designed and constructed using exotic Tonewoods including Mahogany, Ebony, Rosewood and Spruce. Further detailed shots can be viewed at www.kymatix.faithweb.com. It was constructed while studying a Luthiers Course through www.thomaslloydguitars.com. Still playing great.
Speakers made from coconut shells. The clapping sticks (idiophones) are made from Blackwood (Acacia Melanoxylon), a native Australian Tonewood cousin of the Hawaiian Koa used traditionally to make ukuleles. See here for a link to the kymatix.faithweb site with a transcript of the Koa article published in Australian Guitar Magazine.
Skateboard designs. Ink and pen.
This installation is the third in a series over many years. The first was made with papier mache and cardboard, the second were similar although painted with natural colour and used green shade-cloth for the leaves. This was aiming to be lit with the UV light underneath and a waterwave projector to give the palm dappled light and an illusion of glowing and moving. Also lit through the holes in the trunks. The design didn’t quite have the affect I was looking for so is considered a sketch for future developments in the series.
A recent series of chilli shaped cushions designed for use as a tactile installation.
Food design. Slow cooked pulled-pork sliders with red cabbage coleslaw and bbq sauce on the left. An attempt at an old school Big Mac on the right complete with Mac sauce recipe found on you tube, direct from the original manufacturer.
Shameless self-promotion of latte art. Theres something amazing about these designs that flow out of the jug. Every time I pour a coffee it never ceases to amaze me just how beautiful and individual they can be. A result of gravity, the coriolis effect and the baritsas motor skills.
A design installation done purely for fun using offcuts from a recently installed front fence. Ink and Pen. This is the result of feeling frustrated with the mode of online study.
An etching plate yet to be printed.
A collection of works from over the years that have been done more for fun than for professional application. Art and Design has been present in my life from a very young age and something I enjoy on a personal level, from a place of self-development and enjoyment. My upcoming show will be a body of work centred around the forst couple of shits in this series, developing into the use of coloured pen and ink and further geometric representations of fractilised design and meditations centred around the materialisation of Metatron’s Cube.
