Sydney Exhibitions. Artist Kylie Stillman At Utopia Art Sydney. 1-29 August 2015.

“An artist’s studio says a lot about their practice. A change in conditions or location, even a new view, can lead to new directions for an artist’s work. When I embarked on this new series, my studio space had been temporarily down sized. I adapted to smaller, covert spaces within my home – a desk and chair camped in the hallway – by making small works, ‘drawings’ for want of a better word.”

Sydney exhibitions. Kylie Stillman describes her recent work as her “thinnest” sculptures to date. Over, under, around and through, looping across paper with needle and thread, Stillman continues her fascination with marks, absences, and the elements that make up a whole. Dew drops on spider webs, instructional diagrams for surgery, warp and weft and mesh, a feather – we are challenged to consider how seemingly disparate images relate. For Stillman, each thread “drawing” touches upon questions of how space is articulated and how things are made. In many ways, the artist’s process of making is conveyed in the finished pieces. As Stillman says, “the way that you make it is the way that you see it.”

Utopia Art Sydney. 2 Danks Street, Waterloo NSW 2017. Opening Saturday 1 August, 3-5pm.

Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!
