Open studio

Join Studio Studio of Mitchell on 5 November at 57 Dacre Street, Mitchell.

Centered between sculpture and print-media, the interdisciplinary practice of Richard Blackwell involves a network of objects, a collage of marks, observations and processes, representing his felt experiences of the city. Parsed by printmaking, robotic fabrication and advanced manufacturing technology, produced through idiocractic systems of and automation, Blackwell’s work analyses the changing mechanics of human labour, considering the ways in which human limitations can be transcended by creating systems of production that supplant manual labour. His work, largely, is a reflection of what it means to make physically and digitally, in the context of the urban landscape. Richard is reknown for his printmaking and unique designs. Visitors can expect to meet the maker and view Richard’s prints and studio space.
