‘SUPERPOSITION: Equilibrium & Engagement’
From 16 March – 11 June, under the artistic leadership of Mami Kataoka, the 21st Biennale of Sydney promises to be a compelling exploration of the most urgent issues of our day through the eyes of exceptional international and Australian artists.
@samfalls came to art through the study of physics, linguistics and philosophy. Inspired by the natural world, he creates artworks that explore the materiality of colour and light.
Continuing his exploration of materials, techniques and processes, Falls presents a series of large-format works on canvas at Carriageworks. Often created outside in the urban or natural landscape, the scale of Falls’ artworks is influenced by and connected to the places they are made.

Exploration is a critical aspect of humanity. From around the world, through history, and now into-outer-space, exploration consistently remains paramount. We need it. We just do. Humans are wonderful, nothing pleases us more than a little well-mannered frivolity. It might sound strange to compare exploration with light-heartedness, but it is actually necessary. In early history, exploration was basically dependent on survival. It was necessary for us to explore new lands in order to survive. As time went on we grew as a species. Now, Post 2nd Millennia A.D., exploration is just as important as ever.
Houston, we have a solution.

A superbly decorative early chart engraved by Arnold van Langren showing the African coastline of the Indian Ocean from the Cape to Natal, Mozambique and Madagascar. Tooley described it as "the earliest and most decorative special map of the east coast of Africa embracing the eastern Cape, Natal, Portuguese East and Kenya." From the Itinerario, an account of Linschoten's voyage to Goa while in the service of its Archbishop in 1583 and return in 1589. The chart is finely embellished with scrollwork cartouches, wind roses, galleons and sea monsters. In the upper corner, the fabled figure of Prester John sits in idealized royal splendor receiving emissaries.
Took a day trip from Marrakech to Berber villages to experience the life of the villagers. This beautiful alcove in a maintained clay home is my picture to represent the experience of the day in a 1000 words.
