"Lyndal Jefferies: Amoebase and Crystalline Matter"
2002-11-20 until 2002-12-20
Physics Room
Christchurch, , NZ New Zealand (Aotearoa)

New Zealand born artist Lyndal Jefferies has spent several years studying and exhibiting in Europe and Australia, her recent return home will be marked by the presentation of two new bodies of work at the Physics Room in Christchurch. Using a variety of materials including mercury, oil, pigments and sound, Jefferies has developed a series of pool works exploring her interest in the molecular nature of matter.

The artist takes the human body as a starting point to discoveries relating to all matter and energy systems. Installed in the Physics Room will be amoebase, a work in which low frequency electrical resistance is transmitted randomly through sound into pools of matter - creating intricate patterns, wave forms and crystallisations. Through this work Jefferies is able to give a kind of visual form to sound, creating a new experience of the sonorous world for the viewer.

In an accompanying body of work, crystalline, Jefferies again blends science and art, exploring the complex and intricate nature of matter - how it acts and how it grows. In these works Jefferies presents exquisite salt paintings grown on glass, complex structures grown from saline solution and cast glass snow crystals.

Lyndal Jefferies studied at Sydney College of the Arts, and Goldsmiths Colege in London. She recently completed a residency at the Irish Museum of Modern Art in Dublin. Previous exhibitions have included the London Biennialle, the Museum of Contemporary Art Sydney, Transmission Gallery Edinburgh and Artspace in Auckland.
