THE STAND-OUT FOR ME, WAS HEART OF BONE’S ‘BORN2HUSTLE’ COLLECTION. A COLLABORATION BETWEEN EMMA ABRAHAMS AND PATRICK CHRISTIE INK, THIS CUSTOMISED COUTURE IS BADASS AND BRAVE! ALL OF HEART OF BONE’S JEWELLERY IS UNIQUE AND HAND CRAFTED AND INSPIRED BY EMMA’S LOVE OF ALL THINGS ROCK’ N’ ROLL, DARK AND CULT.

THE HALL & WILCOX Art Exhibition, LUCE, launched tonight at the Rialto Towers. P.S light were COMMISSIONED TO DESIGN A SERIES OF LIGHT INSTALLATIONS including wall words and light boxes. IMAGES OF THESE WORKS WILL BE POSTED ON THIS SITE AFTER THE SHOW.

P.S LIGHT explores the subversive through the use of light. As part of the Hall & Wilcox ‘Luce’ exhibition, I created a trilogy of works that explored this concept. P.S LIGHT are contributing works in the form of wall words and INFINITY light boxes that all play with the process of contradiction and reversal. Satire is one of the most potent forms of subversion for artists and P.S are no exception. Let there be light…. and let it be DARK.

APRIL 2014

I have never seen black as bleak or negative.

For me, it is confident and clever, strong and specific.

When I studied art, I remember seeing Kazimir Malevich’s Black Square (1915) for the first time. I was intensely moved. His critics at the time said ” It’s just an empty square, a blank space ” to which he replied “Can’t you see that it is full, full of nothing.”
This black Supremacist square is one of the most discussed paintings in Russian Art and is a metaphor for a new way of looking at life.
Malevich was trying to create a new perception, a new way of seeing. It also mirrored Lenin and the political backdrop at that time.

This minimal aesthetic ignited my interest in black. Several artists and fashion designers since then have followed and extended upon this minimal aesthetic. I BELIEVE EVERYTHING LOOKS BETTER IN BLACK & WHITE.

THIS SITE LETS ME explore and share some of the visuals that inspire me…

Believe in black…

BLACK IS BOTH MODEST AND ARROGANT AT THE SAME TIME.

BLACK SAYS THIS:
“I DON’T BOTHER YOU SO DON’T BOTHER ME”
– YOHJI YAMAMOTTO

WHATEVER IT MAY REPRESENT TO YOU, BLACK HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE BASIS FOR MY INSPIRATION.

IS IT MELBOURNE?
IS IT MINIMAL?
IS IT MACABRE?

BLACK IS THE DARKEST COLOUR, THE RESULT OF THE COMPLETE ABSENCE OF LIGHT. IT IS THE COLOUR OF EBONY, OUTER SPACE, DEATH AND MAGIC.

THIS SITE CELEBRATES MY LOVE OF BLACK AND ALL THINGS DARK, MYSTERIOUS AND INSPIRING…
