Alan Constable Solo | Darren Knight Gallery
11 April – 9 May
Alan Constable’s work is multi-disciplinary, ranging from drawing and painting to ceramics. He is most renowned for his ceramic cameras, which the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne recognised when they acquired thirteen of Constable’s cameras that they presented in Melbourne Now in 2014. His ceramic sculptures, which he began developing in 2007, reflects his life-long fascination with old cameras, which started at the age of eight when he would make replicas from cardboard cereal boxes. Constable’s finger impressions can be seen clearly on the clay surface, leaving the mark of the maker as a lasting imprint. Coinciding with his 3D practice, Constable maintains a strong painting and drawing practice, focusing on imagery from newspapers and magazines as his points of reference. Alan Constable is currently represented by DUTTON, New York; Darren Knight Gallery Sydney; and Arts Project Australia, Melbourne.
