Christian Moes

Emergence

Emergence is the process of becoming. Beings of the in-between, these manifestations represent a turbulence in the natural world that has succumb to human consumption and disregard. They emerge from the depths of moral pollution and crawl upon the wasteland of our mortality. Slowly becoming a mark of death and decay, these are the spirits of our unbecoming.

Christiaan Moes is an emerging Melbourne artist whose work revolves around the subject of anthropomorphism (the attribution of human characteristics to animals) using it as a metaphor and visual embodiment for the human condition, critiquing social identity, sexuality and perception of nature.

Earthbound, lightbound

The artists in Earth bound, light bound share a deep interest in the rich and mercurial paradigm that encompasses our connection with the earth and its atmospheres. Their works include both wearable and sculptural forms and are the result of close observations of the shared space of natural phenomena and emotions. 

Physical and ephemeral elements of our relationship with the natural world are channeled through sensitive transformations of materials that include metals, minerals, textiles and ceramics; speaking in languages that resonate internally and externally, referencing the landscape, the body and the psyche and the symmetries and tensions between them.

Again and Again

The idea of the multiple is a popular staple of the art world. Editions of prints or photographs are prevalent and even the three dimensional object has been adapted to this model. The work of Joseph Beuys shows the breath of the multiple from signing and writing slogans on bank notes (often Kúnst=Kapital) to Sled (1969).

Brand and McArdle seek to explore the idea of the multiple through their existing practices. How can this notion be the central force for making? What is a multiple? How do their practices play differently off this central theme?
