Taste Contemporary is delighted to bring together two seemingly disparate artists, Matthew Harris & Paul March, for a unique exhibition that explores the parallels in each artist’s approach to making.
By creating work that is pieced, patched, layered and assembled, Matthew Harris explores repetition, pattern, line and image across and through the surface of cloth. Focusing on time and the slow laying down of material, his work is constructed in an almost archeological manner. For this exhibition Paul March presents an installation of unidentifiable, tuberous flowering plants that appear to have undergone some sort of process of petrification or preservation. Here the action of sculpting is determined by the morphogenic possibilities, constraints of matter and the historical patterning of repetitive gestures and sculptural habits.
