Tim Clarkson

Folded

21 March — 22 April 2024
Opening: Thursday, 21 March, 6:00 — 8:00 pm

 

Fox Galleries is proud to present the exhibition Folded by Tim Clarkson. Clarkson is celebrated for his distinctive ceramic cubist-inspired sculptures.

Clarkson’s work explores the deconstruction of forms into basic shapes and lines, which are then reconstructed in a semi-abstract manner using sharp angular planes and geometric shapes. He is best known for his origami-like sculptures of fauna, which feature in various private and public collections around Victoria and internationally.

The show is held in partnership with St. Hubert’s Estate and celebrates the 2nd anniversary of the newly designed Cellar Door and the commission of Tim Clarkson’s Stag. Fox Galleries will host a bespoke team of St. Hubert’s sommeliers and wine specialists to facilitate a wine tasting for the opening night of the exhibition.

When speaking about his practice, Clarkson states:

Being intrigued with the Cubists of the early 20th century, it comes as no surprise that my work heavily consists of angular lines, geometric shapes and Origami-like forms. As did the Cubists, I strip back forms, break them into flat angular plans and recreate them into 3 dimensional forms.
