“Translated Fields”, Rachael Polson

Exhibition: Pump Shed, Seedling Art Space, Blackwood Forest Recreation Park, Adelaide.  September 3-11 2011.

From Seedling Art Space:

“Translated Fields is presented in the Seedling Pump Shed space and is an exploration of the physical and formal elements of the Seedling Pump Shed and its surroundings; the corrugated iron of the shed, coloured graffiti marks found around and the sapling trees whispering in the surrounds. Polson ‘paints’ in 3 dimensional space further exploring gesture and repeated action using thread rather than painted brush marks for an elaborate site-specific installation.

Rachael Polson, from New Zealand, achieved a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Honours) from Adelaide Central School of Art in 2009. Polson’s practice explores painting in the expanded field, sculpture and photography.”

The following was part of  Translated Fields.   For full slideshow of exhibition and catalogue essay click on “Seedling Exhibition 2011” tab above at right.
