Real Life has so much Light
Real Life Has So Much Light is a collection of works made over the last two years from different locations in India.
Family and friends who sat for these works became active participants in creating the scenes depicted.
Exploring personal narratives, these works use a docu-fiction approach to create an anthology of intimate constructed moments.
Set in a hypothetical reality in which India has taken over Australia, Kwality Chai is a playful and subversive exploration of cultural imperialism in a distinctly Australian context.
Whilst exploring the post-painterly and sculptural arenas of minimalist construction, Aftermarket is a product of Basil Papoutsidis’ aesthetic fanaticism with material behaviours and the applications of custom automotive culture. Formal experiments explore the introspective quality of material deconstruction, examining object hood in space in the form of rigorous formal experiments. These experiments exist three dimensionally, yet reference the platform of the image and linkage between the format of painting and dimension of sculpture.
