Hyacinth

2006

Corkboard, paper, photographs, plastic, fabric, pins, wood, oil paint, acrylic paint, charcoal, pastel, string, ceramic, shells

244 x 216 x 38.1 cm
Mining the nostalgic and sentimental qualities of his eclectic materials, Elliott Hundley’s collages create condensed ‘dreamscapes’, entwining the personal and symbolic into friable mythologies. Hundley engages with the dramatic in the staged emotiveness of his structures and in the performative element of their intensive making process. From a distance, Hundley’s Hyacinth exudes a painterly expressiveness, which dissolves on close inspection into clusters of tiny figures, magazine clippings and bits of fabric precariously held in place by pins. Using formalism as a platform for narrative structure, Hundley’s exquisitely delicate consternation transforms the act of looking into an adventure of exploration and discovery.

216 X 142 cm
Balancing evolutionary chaos with blueprint precision, Elliott Hundley’s The Hanging Garden… presents a topsy-turvy architecture of convoluted lines, intimate mark-making, and swirling colourful forms, populated by masses of little people. Comprised of two images – one on both the front and underside of a transluscent sheet of paper -- Elliott Hundley’s The Hanging Garden… presents narrative drawing as a palimpsest, quite literally over lapping information, so that one surface contains the faint suggestion of the other. This idea of fragmentation and continuation is reinforced through the torn edges of the paper, diversity of materials and disjointed drawing structure. Unfolding with the charisma of epic fairytale, Hundley’s drawing melds the familiar and foreign, his consuming process and encyclopaedic references mirroring the free flow expanses of imagination.
