Lamington Drive is pleased to present Out Of This World – new works by April Phillips.April’s experimental illustration practice converts her digital drawings and concepts into analogue processes for her first Naarm/Melbourne solo show. Out Of This World comprises of a hand-painted mural, a series of ceramics and 9 large-scale screen prints on paper, plus one adorned mirror. The body of work explores the connection between beings and objects.Currently April is an artist-in-residence at Megalo print studio (Kingston, ACT). Her process involves the development of forms as visual assets – not entirely planned in composition, meaning or colour. The intuitive assembly of these assets allows for flexibility to repurpose, repeat, play and reimagine big world configurations.For April, conflicting emotions of sadness and optimism are expressed visually as stacks atop, under and at the edges of one another on the page. The series invites viewers to pay attention to the small wonders of the natural world and reflect upon who we are within it.April Phillips is a Wiradjuri-Scottish woman of the Galari peoples based in regional NSW. April’s arts practice is experimental, mixing analogue mediums with digital arts; this includes illustration, AR research and printmaking. April leans into character design and the representation of bodies as a narrative tool to explore empathy, fun and form. Her use of vivid colour and unlikely digital processes celebrates the potential of computer art for a new world.
