Same and Different

The exhibition consists of works made during an artist residency in Yogyakarta Indonesia.
The works reflect on ideas related to material, composition and the context where the work is created.

If You Are Here
Andesitic Lava Stones, Polyester Resin
28cm x 30cm x 50cm & 27cm x 26cm x 55cm

A mould was made of each stone. The stones were then separately crushed into dust. The dust was mixed with resin and cast in to the mould of the opposite stone. If You Are Here reflects on the basic yet essential relationship of material composition and form.

Perpetuate – Undulate
Lava Stone & Andesite
45cm x 32cm x 25cm & 26cm x 27cm x 30cm

Each stone was carved by hand. The stone was rotated during the carving process and therefore does not have a permanent base. One of the stones is rubbed with cooking oil, intensifying its color and referencing the culinary deep frying culture of Yogakarta.
