   1.5.09 – 22.5.09


As part of Design Island 2009 CUBE presents Surface , a joint exhibition between Tasmanian artists Luke Wagner and John Hounslow.

Luke Wagner’s paintings explore how we engage with the Tasmanian landscape. Wagner utilises form and texture to convey the complexity of our environment, the result is a selection of work sculptural in effect.

In contrast, Tasmanian metallurgist John Hounslow brings together a  selection of fine and functional forge-weld designs. Hounslow specialises in the art of Damascus forging and is the leading Tasmanian artisan in his discipline.                                                      


Cube (Art + Design)
In Surface, Jemima Boyer brings together three Tasmanians with very different approaches to the natural world: Luke Wagner’s paintings explore a relationship with the Tasmanian landscape that is in sharp contrast with John Hounslow’s selection of fine jewellery and hand-forged steel knives and Ali Pyrke’s poetic, nest-inspired fashion designs.

1 May - 22 May: Tues - Sat, 10am - 4pm
Cube (Art + Design), 146a Elizabeth St, Hobart

Ali Pyrke + Sabrina Evans
Evolving over city blocks and displayed in unexpected places, Evans and Pyrke each present new work investigating the parameters of fashion—how it connects and disconnects in the continual pursuit of identity and self expression.

Ali Pyrke: 20 April - 2 May
FIG, 244 Elizabeth St; Tasmanian Coffee Roasters, 303 Elizabeth St; Cube (Art + Design), 146a Elizabeth St, Hobart
