Hooray For The Here And Now – Exhibition
September 21 @ 12:00 pm – September 30 @ 5:00 pm
Hooray for the Here and Now is the first solo exhibition by multi-disciplinary artist Sam Haynes. The exhibition title reflects the positive outlook that defines her practice.
Straddling sculpture and photography to balance an intuitive, playful process within a structural framework, the artist presents an ambiguous body of work that defies categorisation. Assemblage photo works will be shown alongside a series of sculptures constructed using materials sourced from the recent renovation of the gallery space itself.
Haynes uses light and shadow to manipulate perspective and perception. Found objects and everyday materials are elevated to luxury items, and precarious constructions are granted longevity in fine art photography, introducing an element of drama and celebration to a fleeting moment. A public art background and experience collaborating with marginalised communities inform her work in equal measure.
Making connections is paramount, whether between materials or across disciplines, between artist and viewer, or ultimately within wider society.
On Saturday 23 September, Sam Haynes will be in conversation with Sheryll Catto, Artist Director & CEO of the artist development agency ActionSpace, to discuss her creative process and the influence of community on her practice today.
The exhibition closes with an opportunity to meet some of the Sound Minds artists who open their studios to visitors on 30 September.
