|Lincoln Austin’s abstract sculptures meld the interests of minimalism and op art to explore the ways regular, repeated forms can generate optical illusions and effects.
The Ipswich-based artist is known for his small, intricate works, but this will change with the imminent opening of Brisbane’s new building, Northbridge, which features his massive wall relief, Once Again.
For the IMA show, Austin presents two different kinds of work: a collection of his glistening silver-mesh sculptures, with their permutations of interpenetrating rectilinear forms, and Field of Vision, a gallery-filling relief that covers the floor and two walls and creates dazzling effects akin to lenticular images. It’s his largest gallery piece to date.
