Kylie Stillman The Perversity of Purpose
3 - 31 August 2013
Paper back books and fence palings are magically transformed by Kylie Stillman into ‘drawings in space'.
Not many artists make art by taking the subject away, but for Kylie this is the secret. When working with books, each sheet of paper is painstakingly carved by hand with a scalpel to create forms which emerge in absence.
The new body of work that comprises ‘The Perversity of Purpose' is an evolution of the artist's sculptural practice, which for the past ten years has involved repurposing domestic and commercial items to create objects and installations.
