Structural Dependency suggests movement or rather the desire for movement. Thorley constructs objects that encourage a state of flux and invite the viewer to respond physically.

Peter Davidson | Omomuki Painting

Omomuki is a Japanese word meaning warm feeling when observing something that makes you feel happy in the landscape. WA-born, Osaka-based, artist Peter Davidson travelled to the Ishinomaki Ogutsu region in Japan after the 2011 tsunami with a surgeon to make records and donate paintings for the recently constructed temporary medical facilities.
