HUI SELWOOD: Cubi and Other Passage
9 April – 5 June 2022
Hill End-based sculptor Hui Selwood presents a collection of painted steel sculptures of an abstract nature. In drawing inspiration from American sculptor David Smith's final series of geometric stainless-steel works titled Cubi, Selwood cites their significance in their ability to illustrate not only the great pursuit of geometric abstract composition but also their nod to a figurative nature.
For Selwood the making of sculpture has a metaphysical context, in which the ideas of identity, change, space and time and the fundamental nature of the world and its habitation by humans are explored. It also facilitates the development and discovery of self, and the relationship between mind and matter. Selwood describes this creative process as not only a great journey of self-discovery but of a visual vernacular on a path interpreting the way of things.
