an exhibition by Logie Evans Teush
For the first time this exhibition collates the artist’s large sculptural works created over the last ten years in one location. Creating large scale, complicated, intricate, intriguing sculptures often for his own amusement Logie has now opened up this rare opportunity to view his collection.
Logie works instinctively with multiple mediums through an experimental process to create new and imagined landscapes and architecture. His sculptures go through transformations and are often destroyed half way through building. This allows an alternative perspective on his work and process and a new-remade work emerges from the rubble.
Influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright, M.C.Escher and Psychedelia, Logie combines his love for architecture and construction with a magical element. Also in his work there is often a partially hidden bio-graphical nature. His interest and skill in lathe work originates from his father’s trade as a woodturner. His family home and garden is littered with antiques, miniatures of buildings, industrial working tools and equipment. Logie seems to marvel at found objects. Even if not personally found, gifted or even dug up, he will age items to become warped and distressed.
The political also plays a large part in his work and thinking, both sculpturally and in drawing. Hard topics such as 9/11 are explored in re-assembled parts and objects to create hidden histories where the viewer is almost encouraged to create their own narratives based on the hints of placed personal objects, memorabilia and shapes hidden in building structure.
