Come check out the opening of Would by Kent Wilson at Anna Pappas Gallery tongiht Wednesday 3 October from 6pm.
'Kent Wilson’s new solo exhibition at Anna Pappas Gallery explores our connection to nature through the materiality of wood and its origin in plant growth. Wilson’s series of wooden skulls and intricate abstract drawings are extrapolations and interpretations of natural patterns, processes and behaviours. The skulls implicate human life in the materiality of the plywood, the contour lines reflecting the growth rings of seasonal time. His considered use of this manufactured natural product blurs the fragile distinction between the natural and the cultural.'
