Hoardings of Fury.

Fu-On Chung.
Philippa Emery.

Looking in any direction all I see is stuff. Stuff filling my lounge, stuff scrolling past on screens, stuff lining the aisles of the supermarket. So many things on top of things, inside things, becoming other things.

A walk to a park might clear my mind of all this mess, but instead I think about the big rocks placed by the path, the houses in the distance, the trodden paths, the plants (introduced or native?), a tag on a tree trunk, and a bin full of dog sh*t. To focus on a single item is to also understand that everything is known through everything else.

Is this what I make art for? To sort out my head, and try to find the ultimate combination shapes, colours, and materials, that might, in a way, sum up the mess (without the mess)? A drawing of chaos is never really chaos, but simply the idea of it re-created to make it easier to digest.

Hoardings of Fury brings together new work by Auckland based artists Fu-On Chung and Philippa Emery.
