Tessellations

15th March - 10th May 2015




Hedy Parry-Davies is a practicing architect with a specialism in conservation; her interest in this profession originates from a preoccupation with the design and crafts that contribute to the construction of buildings.

In Tessellation, Parry-Davies makes use of redundant materials – maps, manuscripts and other papiér trouvé – combining these two-dimensional finds, and crafting them into three-dimensional works of art. Her method of construction allows both the revelation and concealment of the source material’s detail.  She is interested in this tension between content and form, and the sense of intrigue it creates.

Parry-Davies is continuously developing and creating new constructions, which enhance the three-dimensional quality, scale and variety of the work.  Introducing new materials, such as metal meshes, and making use of her own drawings (for her show at m2 Gallery Parry-Davies came and took rubbings from the Quay House building), she feels these combinations offer her endless potential for innovation and creativity.
