Industrial Strength 2022
LEDA Gallery, Newcastle NSW
Exclusively Peeled from an Auto Wreckers in Sydney’s West, - serendipitously called “Pick and Pull Auto Wreckers” and since demolished and redeveloped - Industrial Strength marked a return to gritty, industrial sites for Peeling. The series incorporated the abundance of industrial detritus found in the abandoned space: from spilled oil, accumulated dust, grease and scuff marks to discarded bolts and screws, the series embedded what would otherwise be debris and detritus, using these as compositional focal points. Reframed outside of the locale of a condemned building, Industrial Strength reimagined these scars, marks and scratches as beautiful histories.
