'Precious objects desire special homes. Artbox is 40+ invited artists taking a functional object and transforming it into an art object that speaks to them and their practice. A desired object to be envied by all.

Made at Tacit, crafted and finished by hand, double primed matt black, these lidded boxes provide an opportunity to transform an object associated with the storage of the most precious of objects into its own precious object.

Paint the lid? All the external sides? All the external sides and the inside? Object(s) placed inside the box? All of the above?

Artist Statement

The paintings in this exhibition continue my linear exploration of the grid. But not as grid as straight line rather as grid as motion and construction (building).

One line leads to another. Sometimes works sit for weeks until the next layer presents itself. An intuitive ideology of trust that at some point everything will work out.

That stopping point is always the same. A compositional resolution I could never have conceived prior to commencement.

My current palette is black, white, and brown (light, shade, earths).
