Abstract
Snare (2020), explores the entangled relationship between visibility, concealment, and the domestic sphere as a site of artistic production. Through the use of pattern, painting and sculpture, Snare takes on the form and function of the decorative screen as a spatial partition, engaging transitive painting practices, the installation features five large sculptures and nine small oil paintings. This research has been concerned with the historical devaluation of decorative arts, ornamentation, the home as a site of artistic production and the military implications of pattern. Snare asks the viewer to consider the boundaries between the public and the private, and to ask what happens when the domestic is transported within the walls of a public gallery space? Snare employs ornamentation, interiority and exteriority to both obscure and reveal vital materialities.
