When:
Every day until Sun 15 Jan 2017
Time:
9am to 5pm
Details:
Fold: Paper as Object showcases the works of three artists who push the boundaries of working with paper as the primary medium. James Gordon, Veronica Herber and Helen Sturgess explore, manipulate and transform this fragile yet strong material to explore its second and third dimensional characteristics.

James Gordon, Veronica Herber and Helen Sturgess manipulate and transform this fragile yet strong material to explore its two and three dimensional characteristics through various interpretations including large scale site-specific installations, grid formations, paper cut sculptures and cast paper objects. Despite the proliferation of digital technology and new media in contemporary art paper continues to be a relevant material as its attributesprovide artists with a complex visual and physical language. In this exhibition elements such as shadow and light, tension and release, rigidity and fluidity are juxtaposed and paperís ability to break away from its common two dimensional support role becomes evident as it shifts across the gallery walls, floats weightless in space and emerges as sculptural objects.

Blue Mountains artist James Gordon creates complex paper sculptures, painstakingly assembled and adorned with lavish detail.

New Zealand artist Veronica Herber employs coloured masking tape and Japanese Washi paper as her primary medium to create site-specific installations and intimate, grid-like drawings.

Blue Mountains based Helen Sturgessí large scale paper installations and cast paper objects reveal the topography and atmospheric qualities of the Blue Mountains environment.

This exhibition is part of the Blue Mountains Cultural Centreís celebration of the Year of Print 2016
