21 March – 8 April 2006: Catherine Hockey – FORM-WORK


Gallery 2

FORM-WORK is an investigation into form and line. The result is a collection of minimalist geometric wall and floor constructions.  Pure forms cascade down the canvas and domino into structural abandonment. The gallery becomes a backdrop to the unfolding and expanding mixed media works.

Hockey has captured the architectural offerings of the city and collapsed them into her two and three dimensional works.  Solid structures and tenuous lines connect and dissipate throughout the works. However it is not only the external street façade is which Hockey has taken an interest.  Thought is also given to the internal spaces.  The result is an altered perception of depth and a respect for the negative space of each structure.

Hockey is currently undertaking a Master’s Degree and the Victorian College of the Arts.
