About

“The act of painting and the behaviour of paint, never completely predictable, intrigue me. From the anarchy of spontaneous colour mixing sensuality can reveal itself, psychological and demanding of the viewer to respond. Trying to predict the accidental in this method of immediate colour application is my challenge, and I’m inspired by how colours collaborate and determine the final expression. The boat-shaped constructions and island vignettes talk of change, like the transformation through the corrosion of timber or iron, or the relocation of people from one country to another as a refugee or migrant. Each vessel contains its own landscape within its shape, implying each person who makes the journey brings with them their own unique human landscape.” – Nick Glade-Wright, 2015

“Furniture – functional sculpture? Furniture can be a way to explore ideas and make social comment, it is definitely more than just structure. I develop ideas from the environment which surrounds me, mainly in Tasmania. This environment informs the way in which I manipulate my preferred material, timber. I hope my furniture contributes to the vocabulary of design which signifies things Tasmanian.” – Toby Muir Wilson, 2015
