Over the past 25 years, Braddon Snape has developed a practice that encompasses sculpture and installation in a diverse range of media. The artist has earned a reputation for conceptually rich works revealed through a minimal aesthetic and an astute understanding and sensitivity to materials. Underpinned by a poetic sensibility, Snape’s abstract works often reference place, history, human endeavor and the natural world.
Snape’s current practice has focuses on a new method of inflating steel to create three dimensional forms. He describes the process as “action sculpture” which has given his work a “renewed freedom and reveals a delicate dialogue between control and chance”.
Exhibition opens: 6–8pm Thursday 25 July 2019
