Artist Statement

Low Pressure System brings together a collection of ongoing investigations and will include a new teamwork exploration.  Whilst having shared many art adventures together, this will be the first duo exhibition for the pair. This exhibition plays out the affinitive connection that both James Dodd and Henry Jock Walker have for painting, colour and abstraction.

Whilst the works of each artist show strong visual correlations; their individual approaches, processes and materials are embedded with varied content.  Dodd continues his investigations into the use of mechanical devices such as painting tools and industrial processes and Walker continues his sew collage of pre-loved wetsuits.

(Low Pressure System refers to a weather element that can produce cyclonic storms.  It is also a nod to the ongoing relaxed nature of the artists’ relationship with one another that occasionally produces frenzied activity and outcomes.)
