Exploring the tradition of assemblage and the artists’ considered use of objects, materials or techniques out of context. Artists include Alexander Seton with his mastery of traditional stone carving, Kathy Temin’s detailed faux fur landscapes and Danie Mellor’s revival of old travel trunks that all serve to reinvent the use and meaning of objects and materials in contemporary sculpture.
