LIAM GARSTANG

‘Holding Yard’ was exhibited in the group sow ‘Mountains become islands‘ in October 2019. ‘Holding Yards’ references the penning in of sheep through an empty structure that teeters on abstraction. Trembling geometric lines float against a pulsing inky backdrop that, in the context of the show, takes on an almost post-apocalyptic feel. The work explores the rituals that underpin the way we mark out territory through works made on his family’s farmland in Wagga Wagga.

Garstang’s practice crosses sculpture, video, installation, ceramics and printmaking, through which he explores the psychological meeting points between generational rituals and connection to place. Garstang was awarded the Macquarie Group Emerging Art Prize in 2017 and was also the recipient of the Artist in Residence Award at Megalo Print Studios and the Artist in Residence at OBRAS Centre for Arts and Science in Portugal. He has been curated into exhibitions at Delmar Gallery, the 3rd International Experimental Engraving Biennale and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Australia.
