Andy Roche, Artist in Residence 2018

Portfolio of previous work:


Artist Statement: My practice involves exploring ideas of time, space, change and scale through 2d and 3d geometric abstraction.

Schematic drawings form the basis for print and painting that then develop into 3d. These forms, assembled in multiples and placed in natural light, reveal unforeseen, ever changing patterns.

By varying assembly and scale, different aspects of complexity are generated from self similar units touching upon notions of diversity, inclusivity and identity.

Recently i have been engaged in exploring the application of parametric modeling software and commercial processes to realise forms that, although rigidly geometric in isolation, generate organic fractal rhythms in groups.
