CONSTRUCTIVE REDUCTIVE Constructive Reductive Curated by: Dr Judith Duquemin POP Gallery, Queensland College of Art. Griffith University. Australia 381 Brunswick St. Fortitude Valley, Brisbane 4006 Dates: 24/08/20 – 07/09/20 Dr Judith Duquemin is an Australian visual artist, curator, essayist. Artists: Joseph Buis (FR), Judith Cisneros (AR), Elizabeth Day (AU), Judith Duquemin (AU), Liz Helman (UK), Gosia Koscielak (PL/US), Roland Emile Kuit & Karin Schomaker (NL), Aaron Perkins (AU), Charley Peters UK), T. Michael Stephens (US), Jon B. Thogmartin (US)
Constructive Reductive is a multi-disciplinary exhibition of contemporary, constructive art by twelve international artists whose practices include: immersive light installation; virtual reality/eco-sculpture; projective relief; painting and narratology; structural/spatial/geometric/code-defined painting; luminal, kinetic construction/photo sets; immersive drone-based sound-scape; digital drawing; sonic science, audio art and sound plastics. The exhibition is supported by the essay titled: 'Forming'.
DISCLAIMER -a curated exhibition in a pandemic 'Constructive Reductive' the exhibition was a miracle in the making. It was developed prior to and during lock down in Australia as a result of the 2020 Covid 19 pandemic. Planning was subject to much change due to the sudden impact of the virus on local, national and international relations. Email communication along with a stretched international post across six countries complete with mandatory quarantine and a compromised delivery system enabled the exhibition to proceed. Because Australia was less affected by Covid 19, Griffith University maintained their support for existing proposals scheduled for the wider community. The exhibition deserves further recognition in an art museum (with external funding that can provide audio visual, surround sound installation, virtual reality and laser light installation in addition to the inclusion of 2D & 3D works). The exhibition which was staged in the city of Brisbane (AU) was partially funded by the curator, the artists and Griffith University. Constructive Reductive.

Dr. Charley Peters is a London-based painter, writer on abstract painting and independent curator. She is Course Leader on MA Illustration and Visual Media at London College of Communication. Peters’ work is concerned with the spatial potential of the painted surface, on which she applies subtle variations in colour, tone and scale to construct illusionary light and structural depth. Starting from an interest in the legacy of hard-edged abstraction, her work considers the manifestation of painterly language in the context of contemporary media, where viewers experience multitudinous visual information in quick succession, often dematerialized and seen on screens. Using techniques of layering, opposition and juxtaposition as a means of exploring the materiality of paint, Peters explores the disrupted syntax of pictorial composition synonymous with our experiences of reading space, material and abstract form in the post-digital image world. Peters has exhibited work widely at an international level, showing recently at Saatchi Gallery (London), Coventry Biennial of Contemporary Art (Coventry), PaintLounge at Sluice Expo 2018 (Berlin), dalla Rosa Gallery (London), Z20 Sara Zanin Gallery (Rome), Yantai Art Museum (Yantai), Art 2 (New York) and Boecker Contemporary (Heidelberg). Peters has contributed writing about painting to online and print publications that include Instantloveland, A-N, Turps Banana and Abstract Critical. She is a peer reviewer for The Journal of Contemporary Painting and an independent curator, recently curating the group exhibition Merge Visible, Contemporary British Painting through a Virtual Window for the Contemporary British Painting group. Peters completed a PhD in Fine Art Theory and Practice in 2006, which explored notions of interior space in art and its relationship to Freud’s writings on The Uncanny. https://www.arts.ac.uk/colleges/london-college-of-communication/people/charley-peters.

Je suis né à Saâcy Sur Marne (France) en 1955, et j’ai commencé à peindre dès l’âge de quinze ans en suivant les conseils d’artistes locaux; aussi je considère être autodidacte. En parallèle de la peinture, j’ai travaillé en tant qu’Educateur Spécialisé et Art Thérapeute auprès de personnes en difficultés, jusque l’âge de la retraite. En 2014, après avoir cessé de peindre pendant 15 années, j’ai repris mon travail de peintre faisant table rase de mes recherches passées, et peignant des toiles monochromes grises avec des lignes verticales et horizontales. Les peintures de P. Mondrian et F. Morellet furent pour moi des sources d’interrogation et de réflexion. Depuis j’ai introduit les diagonales et les couleurs, pour élargir mes travaux. Ma démarche actuelle se situe autour d’un travail structural géométrique: construit, déconstruit, composition, décomposition, peint/non-peint, avec des lignes diagonales de tension inscrites dans des perspectives planes, sur des toiles assemblées par modules pour présentation en polyptyques.

Roland Emile Kuit is a sonic art pioneer who proceeded beyond the acoustic field after having studied flute at the Royal Conservatory, The Hague. He has conducted research into electronic music at the Institute of Sonology, Utrecht (1980s). At the IRCAM in Paris he experimented with new approaches to acoustic composition leading to research of physical modeling in spectral music. Kuit’s work ranges from experimental sound, architectural installations, to acoustic performances and composing for public spaces. He researches chaotic systems, sound at the atomic level, morphology and decision-making processes using algorithmic and stochastic approaches; and new models in feedback systems. His research of sound design equipment includes: Kyma Pacarana, Buchla 200, SCOPE SDK6 Max/MSP, Xite, Modular IV, Xite-1, Nord Modular, KLC MS-20, Fortran IV, NMG2, Voltage-control studio (BEA 5) Institute of Sonology, ARP2600.

Aaron Perkins is a Brisbane-based artist whose practice draws from literature, online reportage and cryptic crosswords to explore a playful enthusiasm for written language alongside a skepticism of narrative authority through the medium of painting. Using a process of grammatic abstraction, allied with an exploration of the physical relationship between a painting and its viewer, his works oscillate between surface and interface to similarly require an oscillation between looking and reading. This tension is embedded within Perkins’ doctoral research into how fiction might be used as a method in painting to explore the enabling fictions of reality.

2020. My art practice, both sonic and visual, is about place and dislocation and invariably explores this in urban environments. I was interested in the idea of making a piece that explores places and atmospheres through sounds that drift in and out of consciousness; as if on the edge of or travelling though places that could be anywhere, yet recognisable. With this, I wanted to explore concepts of long extended hypnotic sequences that are steady states with longer durations of sound, allowing for active listening. I wanted the city as a manic place with drifting field recordings of voices and transit using the drones as a suppressant to this; hence the title, Lithium City.

Judith R. Cisneros. Argentina. DNI 14.751.571 Professor of Fine Arts. University of Buenos Aires. "Matter and energy change the geometry of space... light is matter and energy. To sculpt a beam of light, I take the materiality of light as expressive concrete mass to be sculpted and shapes to communicate its own essence, creating luminous volumes, perceptually visible but ethereal, transparent and intangible ...light objects in the space with volume and identity...objects that can be passed through, by the body, that integrate us to its atmosphere, changing in quality, color and definition; stimulating perception".

Karin Schomaker: Tuning in with the work of Roland Kuit I designed maquettes from waste materials. In order to create what I had in mind I had to bring the material to another level via photography and photo editing. The character and essence of each maquette or it's detail has been brought forward by leaving out color. Each environment is supposed to be a concept of space and light: An experience as such, and designed to fit in the sound composition. Biography Karin Schomaker Visual artist, Multi Media Designer. At a very young age, Karin Schomaker was fascinated by the 'build environment': Architecture. Later, in photography she captured what caught her the most through the selection of detail and element - lifting them out of their original context and exploring the newly created elements. More recently Karin had the opportunity to bring abstract photography to a new level via visuals. This offered her the opportunity to explore in new ways her never ending experiments. The visuals that interact with sound add a new dimension of time. This may result in an exciting scenery of evolving forms open structures and grids as well as semi-transparent, colored and curved walls. How much randomness can a structure bare and still tell what is to be told? At which point does a diffuse form turns into ‘noise'?What does the subtle difference between surface and texture mean in terms of tactility? This is all paving the way to a new language.

Dr. Elizabeth Day. Sydney, Australia. Education 2009–2013 Doctorate of Creative Arts, Department of Writing and Society, University of Western Sydney. 2002–2004 Master of Arts Administration, College of Fine Arts, University of New South Wales.1994–1997 Master of Fine Arts. Elizabeth Day is a visual artist and arts facilitator whose career spans more than 30 years. She maintains a studio practice in Sydney, NSW, and Bruny Island, Tasmania (AU). “Creatively, Day’s work has been at the forefront of developments in feminist art practice, as it has engaged with issues of transportation, colonisation, migration, exile, and adaptation through practices of creating networks and histories: tracing traumas and sketching survivals. “Day’s work cultivates an alternative ecology founded on the ethics of care and generosity, an ethics that aspires to honour the equivalence of all things, and through that non-hierarchical acceptance, attempts to make amends for injuries both personal and historical.” Peter Hutchings, Discontinued Narratives: Elizabeth Day. 2017. Elizabeth Day is currently researching “Working in the Trouble”, a new doctoral project at Deakin University. This research will develop a theoretical framework for 6-7 inter-related projects that Day has developed since 2013.

Member of the lighting design team. My project Virtual Unism realizes and extends Unist theories created by Katarzyna Kobro and Wladyslaw Strzeminski, two early XX Century art pioneers. In their book Space Compositions: Space – time Rhythm and Its Calculations from 1931, they described the mathematics of the open spatial compositions in terms of an 8:5 ratio which lead to their Unism theory. This model evolves from the natural harmonic proportion, found in nature. Kobro used the golden section, coming from Pythagorean theory and Fibonacci sequence of natural numbers and was interested in the process of creating arts towards nature using technology as wells as addressing the bio-mechanical architecture of the human body. In Kobro’s theory a human body movement in space and time creates the form, the sculpture. “Virtual Unism” shows how virtual reality could create the same forms in the infinity, and how Kobro’s theory can be translated and interpreted in virtual space.
