Parallel lines meet in this conversation between the works of Melbourne based artists Kubota Fumikazu and Nicholas Mellefont. Their independent inquires into geometric form and spatial play articulated respectively though painting and photography, come together to discuss the tensions between perceptual and abstract qualities and create a platform on which to discuss the underlying form of discussion itself.
Kubota Fumikazu’s work features precise and finely calculated geometric shapes. In his paintings he uses combinations of simple forms to portray a sense of unity. The worlds created in his paintings are an antidote to an increasingly accelerating society, with all its isolation, frustration and emptiness that can occur.
Nicholas Mellefont, captures in his photographs temporal and geometric moments using the camera as an apparatus to arrange space and form. Concerned with what is human, his works study the cycle of interior being a selected exterior and the exterior a projected interior.
