I knew nothing of the history of this building but it was unique and visually fascinating. A quick Google search lead to a little history but I appreciated it as an incredible display space with an industrial period in its past.
Much of its charm came from that which was left raw.
But, I hadn't stopped by to see the building. I wanted to see the art and design and the first booth was a show stopper for me. It was the work of Jacob Kulin from Kulin Modern. I especially liked Three-Sixty which was a tryptic wall sculpture constructed of steel finished in black oxide and rust. It was three-dimesnional - half of what you see in the following photo is shadow lines.
Here is a view from the side. It is an incredible study of line and negative space.
Much of his work was a combination of industrial chic and sculptural principals.
He had also created a series of furniture designs that belong in my Branch series for sure. He has a group of tables at the show that combined different branches with differing barks along with other materials.
The following wall piece, Willow III is constructed of burnt bamboo and mahogany. I was impressed with the subtle gradations created by burning.
This Sunday wandering was another experience in being inspired by the creativity of others. I left having been exposed to new ideas, new materials, new processes. As always, its got me thinking!
