Aaron James McGarry is a visual artist who works primarily in Sculpture and site-specific installations. However, as a multidisciplinary artist he also uses other mediums in his photography and screen based works to express his artistic concerns. McGarry’s interests reflect environmental and social impacts on the planet, animals, and one another.
As someone obsessed with our throw away and consumer culture, a large proportion of McGarry’s work involves collecting found materials and reimagining them into new forms. By focusing on sculptural work and placing it into natural or site-specific spaces, it reinforces the ideas of what is disappearing or missing while drawing attention to that particular environment.
Our Hoop Weave concept is about many hands coming together as one.
And we are considering our impact on the environment. The installation aims to be as sustainable as possible; repurposing leverlock rings as our hoops, and sourcing scraps of ribbon, twine and fabric. Our weave will be a journey of layers and textures, with plans to position the weaves as art installations at future Love local events
We are looking for donations of ribbon, twine, scraps, off-cuts etc. from local schools and from home. Rather than adding to landfill we want to use as much waste as we can to create our installation.
Helen Amanatiadis is a Sydney based artist whose practice encompasses textile, sculpture and installation. Through her practice, she explores human evolution and consciousness attained through the complex process of shaping the natural world into technological inventions, with a particular focus on the role of string and textile in our technological development. Her work also investigates the tensions and contradictions in the human story from primitive/ancient to modern/industrial.
Probability of Miracles (2016) (8.2mm fluoro rope, nylon 240 x 160 x 1cm) manoeuvres space and defies gravity like a magic carpet. The work is made from fluoro rope, a contemporary incarnation of the primitive technology of string, using the hand-crafted technique of crochet. The grid references the Cartesian grid and binary space of digital technology, which had its genesis in textile. The work maps and defines the space it occupies, much like the invisible grid of longitude and latitude maps real space and pixels map code in digital space. The work points to the idea of a miracle and the hope of maintaining freedom in a world that is becoming increasingly controlled by digital technologies.
