BENJA HARNEY
New Platonics

See the work - scroll right >>

Once treasured, paper may have lost its primacy in the digital age but for Paper Engineer, Benja Harney, the blank page is a versatile place of possibility. Harney will concede his paper career through his first solo exhibition at NG Art Gallery with a series of natural platonic solids that push the pristine state of paper from the thinking and folding of design into art.

Through the five platonic solids, Harney explores the symmetrical possibility of forms within forms, repetition and tessellation, building on the core concepts of form and material within nature.

 

 


Strong threads run through from Harney's renowned commercial design practice that includes recent Australian and international collaborations with Hermes, Romance Was Born, Harpers BAZAAR, The QVB, Adidas Originals and Kylie Minogue. Harney uses these commercial strands to bring relevance and clarity to underpin his creative practice.

Platonic Solids will be opened on Tuesday 27 November at NG Art Gallery, Chippendale, from 6 - 8pm.
