Thomas Hancock is a Melbourne-based artist from New Zealand who deals with the depiction of found objects set against ambiguous backgrounds. Found objects, photography and painting are combined to create something simultaneously figurative and abstract. Objects are chosen for their qualities of form, their geometric and linear possibilities. The objects are familiar yet strange, their identity and purpose sit tantalisingly at the edge of the viewer’s mind.
Exhibition opens: 5-7pm Saturday 6 April 2019
