GARY COLCLOUGH: OTHER WORLDLY
14 November - 20 December 2014
The combination of sculpture and drawing has become a distinctive element of Gary Colclough's practice, with the new work presented in Other Worldly he drives this investigation even further. Delicate pencil drawings are framed and suspended by meticulously constructed sculptural structures, which not only support but complement them. While Colclough has frequently worked on floor-based structures, the works on show are conceived for wall installation, creating a strong series of constructions connected by the use of geometric outlines.
In these works the natural order of things has been upturned, in Slight Return a forest is twice depicted on its side, and There's a World contains a drawing of an upside down tree – or seen the other way – an upside down drawing of a tree. These works appear to be suggesting new perspectives for viewing seemingly common scenes.
