Billy James Crellin
YANK, SQUEEZE, BOW
Presenting a selection of work from his past two years practising at South Australia’s contemporary craft and design institution, The JamFactory, Billy Crellin will show new experimental sculptures and functional wares boasting colour, form and material mimicry.
Using the bubble as a starting point, he has played on this balloon-likeness to depict mash ups materialised in glass. His developed mixed media approach makes use of enamels, effect paints, poscas, decals and neon light. An idea central to these recent works is his observations on contemporary commodity culture and, most noteworthy, the powerful presence of The Copy. As a practising artist and designer, he feels the potential this offers for remixing culture.
