After 15 years of public art consultation, multi-media events and myriad solo and group exhibitions; Stephen Hobbs and Marcus Neustetter are having their first two person show. The selection of mixed media works for exhibition demonstrates their individual studio practices in terms of conceptual logics that sway from the diminutive to the infinite in terms of scale and space, the city and ‘other’ worlds. This exhibition is a starting point for rethinking their solo careers, in relation to conventional modes of exhibition relative to a longstanding dialogue around alternative practices in artistic collaboration.

Defining Lines, by Marcus Neustetter

The trajectory from Neustetter’s interest in the aerial perspective and his artworks exploring the digital Google Earth trace, the hand-made mark has become a natural extension through his drawings. Conceptually his shift has also been to start looking at the meaning of the marks representing the aerial view. What do they stand for, what do they define? The artworks on this exhibition attempt to imbue the mark with the kind of real world impact that a line on a territorial map has.
