Tappan presents SHINE SUNSHINE, a window into Australian artist Luke Chiswell's exploration of the creative process. Chiswell, a multimedia visual artist, merges diverse mediums such as screen printing, painting and sculpture to celebrate the allure concealed within trial and error, asemic writing and observing ones self interacting with the creative process.
Inspired by his rural roots, his work radiates authenticity and intricacy.
In his previous works, Chiswell explored the mantras of the physical process to making. In this body of work, he delves into the feeling of creation and the associated energy. Metaphorically, he likens the act of making to basking in the sun, representing the flow state of creativity, and posits flowers as the resultant of ideas left in the sun. The metaphor becomes the thematic basis for his artistic production.
In his bronze and aluminum works, Chiswell employs cast objects with altered value, reimagining them to channel the energy of flowers.
Each artwork, likened to a flower, embodies the energy of growth towards the sun, representing the creative force inherent in the act of creating.
