Solo Exhibition – Threshold
Threshold at Gallerysmith Project Space
June 15 – July 15
Exhibition opening: Saturday June 17, 2-4pm
Subverting artistic conventions of presentation and function, Stacey Korfiatis seeks to surprise and challenge her audience. Rejecting the notion of play as only for children, Korfiatis is driven to create innovative works that deliver experiences, a theme that permeates both her 2- and 3-dimensional works.
Reimagining the 4-cornered archetype, Korfiatis’ painting incorporates sculptural 3-dimensional elements to enable her exploration of the relationship between the subject and frame. Her works discuss issues of autonomy and empowerment in relation to the subject and the question of whether the frame exists to imprison or protect.
