Concrete Art

Series

Wall hung and featherweight, the psuedo-concrete block works delve into cultural, metaphysical and structural foundations. Absorbing warmth by day and emitting heat at night, the block grid mimics both the function and form of the ubiquitous concrete block, a standard unit of construction. Precisely carved, compressed and framed, the work adds warmth to a modernist ‘concrete art’ movement which stripped emotion from abstraction and placed it within a context of nation-building ideals.
