Membranes and Edges

Membranes and Edges
Library Shelf Location 18.SHAW
Publication Date
Description Michael Shaw's work incorporates drawing, printmaking, installation and sculpture through resin, inflated PVC, neon, plastics, rubbers and bronze. It increasingly seems driven by the accommodation of perceived paradoxes such as; the invisible, weightless, and seemingly formless object or singular forms with both unity and variation. The latter is made manifest by subtly deflecting the geometries of elemental forms including ellipses, cones, the figure of eight, and the torus. Light and the ability of translucent and transparent form to capture it have become crucial: with edge and membrane equally significant for the definition of geometry and the creation of illusion and ambiguity.
