Michael Haylen Coterie
2016 Group Show Depot Gallery 2 Danks Street
My images in Coterie were from a solo exhibition in August 2016 titled ‘Pretty Big Pictures’ – Exploring Form and Scale at Chatswood Artspace Gallery.
By printing one to two metres in size, invites the audience to adjust the way the eye reads an everyday subject when it is scaled large, resulting in multiple interpretations of what the viewer might think they see.
The work explores three dimensional and reflected river form as energy lines work into the darks and lights.
You get the sense, it’s not really the object that matters in the end, it’s the revelation of the object.
