September 10, 4pm-7pm
Amanda Thackray’s solo exhibition, Surface Tension, presents the artist’s handmade paper installations, prints and sculpture that comment on plastic pollution and the fragility of the natural marine environment. The exhibition reflects and distorts the world of our oceans inside the gallery space.
Through Thackray’s allegorical environments the exhibition asks the audience to consider the consequences of unnatural materials in our marine ecosystems. There is an intentional, and somewhat uncomfortable, play between the natural and the unnatural . She extends this shift into the aquatic world with her paper pulp net pieces, crafting them to resemble fishing nets and plastic material adrift in our oceans. Her pieces are purposeful symbols of how we can choose to do things differently and create with nature, instead of working against it.
