With particular focus on combining traditional craft techniques, these handmade explorations venture to blur the lines between the functionality of Crafted objects and the ornamental quality of Artworks.
In reflecting the makers hands in the materials, this collection of enigmatic objects begins to explore the current critique of ancient craft techniques with in the contemporary art scene.

Gallery as Residency investigates the gallery as a site for creativity. The gallery becomes not just a space for the display of completed art works but also a thinking and making space that remains in a state of flux through the continual production of new ideas. Gallery as Residency transforms the Paper Mountain exhibition space into a dynamic performance space with the artist working on site, unpacking how art is made and through what interactions ideas come about.
