Event description

Description

Delivered in partnership with Arts and Culture of Yarra Council.

Well known for her poetic carved book sculptures, Kylie Stillman uses a wide variety of piercing and cutting implements to create captivating negative spaces in objects. Symbols, signs, scribbles and anecdotes are intricately carved into the object’s surface to depict growth, regeneration and change.

Stillman’s inventive works are inspired by both art and artisanal traditions to transform and elevate ordinary materials.

Often taking inspiration from the subjects of the books themselves, Stillman at once encapsulates their meaning and, through her own alchemical processes, transforms them so that the viewer may bring their own interpretations and experiences to them.

Note is a suite of commissioned small works that have an immediacy and an informality that
springs from spontaneous unconscious acts. The marks etched into the paper are akin to the
lines made when repeatedly trying to make a pen work or the furious underlining and bolding of text when making an impassioned point.
