Box Art

Adrienne Geoghegan creates a whole new realm of possibility with improbable materials and found objects. Although her mixed media assemblages are created with fragments of everyday discarded objects, the final work transcends the original purpose of these objects. Surfaces, often boxes are painted to become, in effect, a three dimensional canvas to ‘accommodate’ her objects. Adrienne re-purposes and unifies the components into complex compositions to convey their significance. A reoccurring theme is disorientation: being lost, undecipherable maps, enigmatic strangers, perhaps a metaphor for not knowing where one belongs? These shrine like assemblages are often presented with ambiguity and humour.
