Synthesis B

Tom Price Contact Studio

Synthesis is the study of a dialogue between two contrasting materials – resin and tar – and their negotiation for space and identity when forced to become a single unified entity.

What appear to be petal-like inclusions are actually cracks and fissures created through a careful manipulation of the catalysing process of the resin. They cluster around and interact with amorphous invasive bodies of tar, which loom – apparently suspended in space. The tar initially appears densely black, almost light-absorbent, but upon closer inspection, a network of fine green vapour trails can be seen drifting from a surface partially melted by the exothermic reaction of the curing resin. As the tar heats it expands searching for pathways within the resin and rushes to claim opening cavities, creating wafer thin golden slivers of coral-like protuberances.

The effects of the synthesis of these two disparate elements – one black and dense; the other clear and liquid – results in a riot of colour and explosive formations that engage on both a macro and micro level.

Standard size 8 x 9 x 200cm made to order with a 4-8 week lead time. Order 1, 2 or 3 each the same size.

Grand Hyatt, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Ken Gangbar Contact Studio

For the Royal Suite of the Grand Hyatt hotel, Ken created this unique white marble and ceramic installation Constructed from hundreds of individual fin-like pieces, it is almost mosaic in appearance, with the smooth white marble standing in sharp contrast to the rough, grooved surface of the dark porcelain. Combining themes of light, shadow, and contrasting textures, this piece reflects themes that continue to intrigue us.

Contour

Petr Weigl Contact Studio

Topography and geometry meet in these dream-like maps. Imaginary rivers and valleys cut through the strata of cold cast and patinated bronze. The absence of colour enhances the smooth chiselled finish to create a powerful homage to natural structures. These hand made works are unlike machine polished marble, they are more organic looking with some area’s more matt and some more reflective. This natural aesthetic is what makes up their appeal.

Standard size 486 x 120cm made to order with a 6-12 week lead time.

Humanity Gold

Petr Weigl Contact Studio

Humanity is essentially the same, give or take a few degrees of separation and our own personal kinks and twists. We share the same needs, desires and basic concerns whatever our colour, creed or culture. Homage to the craft of ceramics, this series ponders the infinite variations and random differences that occur through the ceramic creation process. Even though each individual tile, like ourselves is unique, the question remains: are we really so different from one another!

Material: Bone-china, glaze, gold lustre matt and reflective & thread on aluminium board, set in an aluminium tray frame.

Standard size 102 x 102cm made to order with a 4-8 week lead time.
