Jarscapes

26 September - 20 October, 2007

Work by Andrew Tetzlaff

Andrew Tetzlaff’s work is an exploration into transformation, use, reuse, and the fusion of place, individual and object. Specifically, it is an examination of the ubiquitous, the generic and the everyday. Through the recontextualisation and evolution of materials and subjects Tetzlaff describes existing relationships in “almost-fictional” terms, shedding doubt on what is real or canny in the world around us.

By incorporating simplistic methods in intricate ways Tetzlaff carves, bends and folds landscape from material with careful regard to its physicality. Little to no substance is actually removed from the whole. Matter is neither created, nor destroyed… only changed in form. The finished work, then, is allowed to slide between an understood reality - that of the found object or the flat plane - and a superimposed one - an interjected place.

Jarscapes is part of the artist’s ongoing investigations into this project.  Andrew Tetzlaff recently completed an MFA at RMIT.  This is his first exhibition at Jenny Port Gallery.
