Julia Holderness & Jay Hutchinson: Overlooked details - Art Collector

Julia Holderness, 'Squares and rectangles small (in wolle)', 2018, felt and wool appliqué, 300 x 400mm. Courtesy of the artist and Bartley + Company Art, NZ.  Overlooked details brings together two artists whose individual practices reflect upon the intersection of culture and everyday life, gender politics, art hierarchies, and the act of looking and responding to the built environment.

Julia Holderness draws on modernist design histories and archives - local and international, real and imagined - to privilege decorative, domestic and design categories often overlooked in canonical art histories.

Drawing on the 1955 theory of pyschogeography, which playfully explores how we respond to urban space, Jay Hutchinson conflates the most banal and omnipresent act of urban mark-making, the tag, with refined and increasingly rare hand embroidery.
