An exhibition of photographs by Sydney-based artist Ioulia Terizis, exploring the intersection and analogies between light, drawing and sculpture.
My work finds origin in the push to explore perceptual boundaries of space in relation to parameters of thought, possibility and consciousness. At the core lies an ongoing engagement with the structure and elusiveness of light, of questions circling materiality, form and the nature and processes of perception.
Recent work is driven by the need to pull at the margins and threads of the medium, to stretch its potential readings and relation to other forms. With these works intersecting assemblage, drawing and sculptural practices – photography too connects as a light marking material where spatial constellations are recorded and appropriated. Ambiguity is constructed, perspective is vague and the assembled elements advance and recede in tactile optical cohesion.
