Karryn Argus makes soft sculptural objects, paintings, stitching’s and installations that interrogate the relationship between making, materiality, abstraction and subjectivity.
Karryn’s work Willing #1 uses the craft based practices of coiling and knitting to produce a soft sculptural bodily form that is mounted on a painted frame. Willing #1 engenders a self reflective, felt response as it suggests movement and humour whilst enticing the viewer to touch.
The production of sensations and affects in Karryn’s work reflects her philosophy that art and life are more richly encountered through the felt experience.
