Defence Mechanisms - Besser Space Exhibition

Melbourne abstract painter and graffiti artist Slicer presents Defence Mechanisms. A collection of new works exploring anti-predator adaptations, materiality and the psyche.

Employing the use of assemblage and a fearless exploration of new sculptural techniques the artist's works explode into physical space armed with conspicuous warning colourations. What was once a two-dimensional field of paint on canvas, striving to extend beyond its limits, is now a tangible expression of raw, physical material informed by the battlegrounds of the natural world.

Slicer’s distinct form of abstract mark making is channeled through common construction materials; Corrugated steel, expansion foam, plastic and wood are combined to create an engaging enquiry into an automated reaction, and the nature of defence.
