Furniture, Painting, Sculpture
Saxon Rudduck's SALA'23 show "SOLIDAIR" continues his SAXMADE exploration of a fresh new Australian style in furniture. The work is vigorous, beautiful and geometric, satisfying functional domestic needs while being an intriguing delight visually. Handmade and hand rubbed in gorgeous Tasmanian Oak composite board the works' genesis is in the emergence of modern architecture in the early and mid 20th Century. SAXMADE, first shown in SALA'21, continues showing a strong influence of architectural and aeronautical design.
The current exhibition, SOLIDAIR, is showing stools, low tables, curio cabinets and pedestals in this geometric, angular, design approach.
The show is also a collaboration with abstract artist Janette Gay who is showing her 2D abstract collages. She is entering the 3D world "wrapping" her work around some SAXMADE sculptural forms, to integrate an exhibition of artistically functional and abstract ideas.
