Western Australian based artist Bevan Honey transforms the Faculty Gallery into planes of familiar yet non-functional 3-D objects made from plywood, polymer resin, polyurethane and automotive acrylic paint. Honey’s objects resemble car parts, and various other functional items located in and around your average backyard shed.

Their resemblance is all that links them with such functionality. Honey explores the form and content of these seeming familiar objects to heighten the audiences awareness of spatial architecture.
This exhibition follows on from a series of major projects the most recent of which was at Galerie Dusseldorf in Perth, titled Project.

It is Bevan’s first major solo exhibition in Melbourne.

Bevan Honey is represented by
Galerie Dusseldorf, Perth Western Australia
