Victoria Holcombe & Tristan McDonald
January 13-16, 2016
Altered and transformed until they become new and abstracted visual representations, the works by Victoria Holcombe and Tristan McDonald are inspired by objects, sounds, and forms that exist in everyday life. The concept of self reflection, specifically self isolation and the fear of failure, as well as current history and culture, are also influences. Made from muted fabrics and colourful acrylic yarns, these minimalistic works assume an organic quality that is a result of the malleability of the medium. Although all of the work is created with textiles, there is a juxtaposition between handmade and machine made techniques. Each work is simply installed in a way that allows it to interrupt the space, as well as to emphasize the weight of the materials used.
