Opening Reception Thursday 4 July at 6pm

For Scheme of Things Adam May enquires into perceptions of solidity and permanence. May’s work arcs between the natural and the manufactured, counterposing tactile and tensile qualities, capturing a momentary balance between force and fragility.

May harnesses wood, metals and polyamides, creating dissonances between worked natural substances and the abstract perfection of contemporary materials and processes. These pieces present as serene and withheld, but they are marked by the violent history of their making. Torched, drenched, hewn and spattered by liquid metal, these sculptural objects have had a turbulent passage into their current forms.
