Object Detail


Description
“…concerned with re-creating the natural world, Bronwyn Smith’s drawings represent her marvel at that beyond which we can see. In Armada Smith turned her focus to the large breakaway icebergs that featured in the media during November 2006 as they drifted towards New Zealand’s southern coastline. Sourcing images of these icebergs off the Internet, Smith attempted to re-create them by covering household objects with fabric and subsequently rendering their hidden shadowy forms on canvas. The drawings’ potential for multiple readings define Armada as a delicate gesture, rich with cultural comment…”
