This May we are presenting recent works and collaborations by Eugene Carchesio across Galleries 1 & 2. In Gallery 3 we are presenting his new sound installation Untitled (Ghost Money).
Since the early 1980s Carchesio has built a reputation for producing small-scale watercolours and minute sculpture. Playing with geometric patterns and figurative symbolism, through his subtle images Carchesio attempts to create an ontological space emptied of the clutter of everyday life, in which imagery from the subconscious can emerge.
His considered placement of interlocking shapes alludes to the science of mathematics and highlights his interest in the purity of shapes and geometry. There is a distinct emphasis on process, this becomes manifest through the visible inconsistencies and variations of pigment application that can be observed in his work.
