And now for something completely different …. Ilia Chidzey gives you ‘Schroedinger’s Splat’

Ilia Chidzey’s exhibition ‘Schoedinger’s Splat’ invites the viewer to enter alternative dimensions in colour and form. As Ilia says ‘you never know what will emerge until you look inside the box.’ Her original and experimental work explores narrative utilising contours, colours, lines and their subsequent relationships.

Her works transition between mystical and primal allowing you to escape the politics of conventional form and experience. They combine the grit of the street with the sensuality of human touch in a quirky assault on the senses. Her latest works involve an exploration of aluminium, mirror, airbrush and sandblasting while offering a sneaky peak into her obsession with form, line and the bizarre psyche of the artist – be they writer, painter, musician, cinematographer or simply a frustrated creative soul.  Ilia’s BA in Industrial Design from the Canberra University has led her to explore many diverse types of media over the years.  Her depictions are imaginatively coloured and embellished with exploratory black lines that wander, Escher-like within and without the form, and her choice of transparent colour and reflective mirror or metallic surfaces in many works contribute to the blurring of distinctions between the observer and the observed.
