Critic and author John Neylon unpacks the long and illustrious career of Helen Fuller who has turned to handbuilding clay vessels in the last three years. He writes: "Responding to patterns of connection based on colour, shape, functionality, memory or caprice is the hallmark of Fuller’s behaviour as an artist. The pas de deux of pattern-based painting and patterning embedded within objects is a constant reminder of the role which patterning, particularly grid and checkered, continues to play in expressing an inner state of mind which simultaneously celebrates and defies a call to order. "
American artist Janet Echelman reshapes urban airspace with monumental, fluidly moving sculpture that responds to environmental forces including wind, water, and sunlight. The artist’s ongoing series of aerial net sculptures started in 1997 when she was in India as a Fulbright Scholar and became fascinated with the beauty and movement of traditional fishing nets. In 2011 her installation 'Tsunami 1.26' hung over the Town Hall traffic intersection in Sydney as a joint initiative of the Powerhouse Museum and Art and About Sydney.
