Sharing a studio for the last four years, Hudspith and Zirk have seen the other’s influence develop in their recent work; colourways, content and overall temperament have begun to overlap. Based on their shared interest in the still life genre, the artists have begun to synthesize their respective practices as July guest residents at the James Black Gallery. ‘things fall into place’ is the product of this collaboration culminating here at Red Gate Gallery as an immersive installation. A collection of found objects and cast facsimiles composed and stacked across varied interconnected surfaces, as well as paintings in the round and drawn symbols expand the genre of still life.
Working in response to their change in environment, their process began with objects, images and materials collected around the Lower Mainland. Through their installation, the artists hope to play with perspective and reductivity to examine the meanings we make through the objects that we keep. Meanwhile, stage-like structures are reminiscent of contemporary photography and the still life genre’s renaissance as a consumer culture motif, while others echo the architectural elements of the gallery space.
