The drawings and sculptures of Shu Kwan grow organically in response to the space the work occupies. Art and place feed off each other with rigorous adherence to an underlying grid structure, which ironically frees him to explore form, line, colour, shape, texture and mass.
His sculptures and wall assemblages, made from found and discarded items, sourced from his domestic and urban environment, are a response to the objects themselves, focused on their surface properties and the manipulations they invite. Through the process of transformation these “waste” objects are reshaped and harmonised to create calm and striking pieces that reimagine the viewer’s world.
Join us for the opening of D/O.19 Shu Kwan's Degrees of Possibility on Thursday, August 2nd from 6-8pm at Disorder Gallery.
