The performative action of their creation is matched by a sheer joy in material aesthetic quality. In assemblage, mundane and industrially produced materials such as Plexiglas and Formica are transformed into swathes of colour, from flat plane to cylindrical form, cutting volumes out of space in an almost architectural gesture. Counterpointing opacity and translucency the objects summon both delicacy and robustness. As such Dault reboots a minimalist art historical inheritance luxuriating in plastic sheens and metallic reflections through a uniquely synthetic palette in a form of, what she terms, ’dirty Minimalism’.
