I Know My Age and I Act Like It Exhibition

Exhibition Tuggeranong Arts Centre
Exhibition Tuggeranong Arts Centre

Overview

Glass is a fluid medium that is constantly in a state of becoming. Louis Grant uses this material to speak of social and psychological spaces that can themselves be seen as ‘unstable compounds. Moving outside of the conventions of studio glass, he produces works that are increasingly testing the relationships between glass and other materials.

Often generated from personal narratives, Grant fashions oversensitive, hyper-fragile entities that are not so much fragile because they’re made of glass, but because of the emotional tumult they’re arranged in and by. ‘I know my age and I act like it’, is a reflection on the end of his 20’s; it recalls the melodramatic, nostalgic and often lovesick times.

Paper Play with Louis Grant
Louis Grant invites you to his exhibition public program workshop Paper Play. You will be introduced to his exhibition, its themes and the making of the work. Then move with him into the Art Room to explore a concept development process he uses in his own practice. You will imagine, create and play with colour, form and composition using various papers, cards, markers and stationery. The Paper Play methodology provides a visual reference and means for developing maquettes and concepts as well as for mixing materials, weights, opacities, patterns and forms in constructed compositions.
