MAY SPACE is proud to present a collection of new work by represented artist, Waratah Lahy. Her exhibition, The Shape of Things, will be Waratah's ninth solo show with MAY SPACE.
'The world around us is full of interesting and surprising shapes and colours, patterns and textures. It’s easy to take the common place for granted, but the trick is to find the value in the unexpected and overlooked.
The phrase ‘the shape of things to come’ is to suggest the way things will be in the future. I’ve taken this phrase as the starting point for my current body of work: observing the way changes are taking place in my immediate surroundings and thinking about how they reflect national and global trends in the environment and society. Although these ‘shapes’ indicate change, I’m also looking at the ‘shapes’ that endure: moments of beauty, wonder and comfort essential in a fast-paced world.'
