Andrew Simmons Unloaded – Homemade soap, turmeric, linen, enamel paint, armature wire,
oak wood, PVA glue, acrylic paint, aluminium foil, kitchen paper
Simmons has an approach to his works in video and sculptural installation, which could be
described as bricolage. It is the utilisation of basic materials to construct unstable forms and then
document their use through video or photographic stills. The presented work for this particular
exhibition is a first for experimenting with homemade soap. andrewsimmons-arts.com/

Lynne Barwick All Art Applied 2014
Lynne Barwick is a Sydney based artist who uses text in her paintings and installations to explore the relationship
of language and visual representation. Barwick’s works assert propositions, construct debates and assume
identities to chatter, observe and contradict each other. Incorporating techniques from concrete poetry, literature
and conceptual art, recent works have examined materiality. lynnebarwick.blogspot.com.au/
Margaret Roberts whl-blp 2014 – Ply, paint, shoe polish, metal, found wheels
Blps were invented by Richard Artschwager in the 1960s. I use them as indicators of the space that is common
to all places, as he did. I remake and adapt blps and other past spatial artworks partly to recognise the
many decades over which artists have worked to contribute to the revaluation of place by the new relationships
they construct between the abstract space of artworks and the actual space they occupy. The vacant
abstraction of blps acknowledges the live nature of actual space by simple contrast, hopefully reducing the
everywhere-nature of actual space that makes it seem invisible. Other blps made during 2014
can be seen on margaretroberts.org. Phil Spark made the legs.
