Kate Nixon: On Reflection

Exhibition and Shows

1 Jul 2022 to 14 Aug 2022 Daily Event

Solo Exhibition in the Glassworks Smokestack

Sydney based artist Kate Nixon has been invited to create an installation in the Smokestack Gallery in 2022. This new work is a continuation of Nixon’s series For Collection and will respond to the dramatic space and scale of the Smokestack. Nixon’s work is playful and painstaking. She is fascinated by the physical experience and repetitive nature ofmosaic. Unlike traditional mosaic, Nixon does not rely on pattern and colour, instead she considers the three-dimensional form and utilises the transformative properties of glass, mirror and light. The act of covering every visible surface of garbage bins with mirror mosaic challenges our preconceived notions of preciousness,
domestic obligations and arts and crafts in the home. It also celebrates the hidden but essential routines in our daily lives. Once modified, the humble rubbish bin becomes a symbol of domestic idealism.
