small wonder – Gerhard Mausz and Alex Miles

November 4, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - November 29, 2016 @ 5:00 pm

Beautiful textures, colours and light, extreme and unpredictable weather, unusual and ancient plant and animal life – they all give Tasmania a unique and mystical character. This exhibition of work by Gerhard Mausz and Alex Miles is their response to Tasmania’s unique natural environment.

Alex’s bold prints and kinetic installations explore the things we feel (wonder, curiosity, anticipation, trepidation) when we’re immersed in a wild place – small figures in a big landscape. Drawn from memories of family adventures and school trips to places like Maria Island, Tasman Peninsula, Dove Lake and Mount Field, her colourful, pattern-based work is made with a young audience in mind (and the young at heart), inspiring them to get outside, embrace adventure and imagination, and discover and value Tasmania’s special places.

The fluid forms of Gerhard’s Hammerschlag Series and terrazzo sculptures reflect his fascination with Tasmania’s marine life encountered while snorkelling, surfing and camping. His natural curiousity compels him to explore. These sensual forms evolved from pushing the boundaries of his practice – using a ball hammer, each object has been hit 15000 to 27000 times to give a unique, sparkling hammer finish.
