Caspar Fairhall // Collective Conversations 2020
Caspar Fairhall discusses his exhibition at Art Collective WA with Andre Lipscombe. Recorded on 15 February 2020.
In his exhibition, Elision, Caspar Fairhall invites the viewer to play with the notion that pictures are paradoxes. They are simultaneously flat and illusionistic, motionless, while having a sense of embodied time. In these paintings and works on paper, architectural elements take on the qualities of eroded geology; geology becomes abstract pattern, and flat geometric forms are used to build ambiguous spatial structures.
