Grounded in process Naomi Harwin’s practice observes the relational qualities of objects and forms in correspondence with space.  Considering how we organise and interpret visual information, Harwin reflects on how we might comprehend objects through the aid of models and images.  Most recently her work has been activated through her creation of forms that compress and manipulate line.  Evaluating, extracting and deconstructing these objects, Harwin explores the dialogue between the form and its represented image, identifying the parts and pieces that make up the ‘whole’. 

Through the use of shape, line and colour, the works become a descriptive interplay of spatial structure, materiality and mapping. Continuously shifting between two and three dimensions, surface and object.  These exchanges, interactions and re-appropriations consider the interchangeable states of objecthood.

Manifesting as collections of information the dialogue and spatial engagement amongst works aims to form an awareness of the ‘whole’ and one’s own relation to it.
