THAT WHICH COUNTS CANNOT NECESSARILY BE COUNTED
17 June to 9 July 2016
This body of work by Michael Hawkins employs strategies of image saturation as a means of questioning the surfeit of information with which we are bombarded on a daily basis through the media. When we are given too much information to reasonably consider, how do we decide what is important and what isn’t? Where do we divide the meaningful from the inauthentic?
Michael Hawkins is a Melbourne based New Zealand Artist who graduated from RMIT’s MFA program in 2013. Hawkins practice is drawing based and utilises screen printing, painting, performance and collaborative processes as a means of exploring how meaning can be generated from the visual interaction that takes place between sign and signage.
