Travelling Light. Flutter and Flight by Marguerite Derricourt at Brenda May Gallery NSW. 30 July to 17 August 2013.


Marguerite Derricourt ‘Ghost Moth I’ 2013 corten steel 65 x 140 x 120cm, $8,500

This exhibition, focusing on the life, nature and mannerisms of moths, emanates a sense of flutter and flight. Holding the centre of the room is Derricourt’s substantial sculpture, ‘Ghost Moth I’ – a claustrophobic cluster of activity in Corten steel. Moulded from Japanese paper, the artist has created a series delicate and textural pieces in white, grey and blue hues, which seemingly have just alighted gently onto the wall’s surface. Appearing to launch themselves from the walls, the ‘Shadowlands’ series visually defy their weighty material.
