CURRENT EXHIBITION

ROBERT YOUDS

8 DECEMBER to 27 JANUARY 2018

Barbara Edwards Contemporary is pleased to present our first solo exhibition of work by Robert Youds. Youds makes artworks that challenge our everyday perceptual experience of objects, images, and things. His production and material practice crosses the jurisdictional lines of enquiry between painting, sculpture, photography, and industrial design. In this he assists the beholder in seeing things afresh while further extending our visual boundaries.

In this exhibition, Youds explores pictures/objects as imagined and remembered fragments drawn from our urban world. He plays with the core perceptual conditions of light, shadow, colour, surface, and their communicative relationship to our aesthetic, cultural, and ideological values. Youds invites us to think about consciousness in our time and the ways that we shape it. For example, is a home a home without personal choices evidenced through the careful spatial choreography of pictures, colours, surfaces, and light? Where do our aesthetic dispositions evolve from?
