Sydney based artist Huseyin Sami (b. 1979) is known for his multi-disciplinary practice engaging with painting, sculpture and installation to explore aspects of time, action and process. Examining the possibilities inherent in the painted process- color, form and material- he deconstructs the process and substance of painting in order to formulate what he calls ‘a unique material language of painting.”

”I approach my paintings backwards, meaning my compositions are often built in such a way that what appears to have been added last is often in fact the first layer. They typically begin impulsively, embracing the element of chance, with watery stains and drips. Later, I respond to the initial layer with strategic moves, often with meticulously rendered geometric gradients. In other works, looping gestural line work switches from positive to negative and back, revealing itself to be graphic. What appear to be thin multicolored graphic lines turn out to be silhouettes of gestural marks that were meticulously covered over, save for the edges. I ask the viewer to piece together the puzzle of my paintings and, in doing so, reassess how they perceive the world of images around us”

Influenced by nature, though not intending to reproduce it, Liam Stevens work is an arrangement of component parts, usually rectilinear and often imbued with an element of the architectural. Adopting line and form in repeat format, process also draws parallels with both nature’s ability to produce countless variations of the same object, such as raindrops or leaves on a tree, and our own fabricated environment, with its duplicate grids, structures and intersections. Stevens explore these similarities through connections in material and space, giving the intervals between as much emphasis as the segments that enclose it.

ONE FOUR is pleased to present EVER-CHANGING, a group exhibition by Seungean Cha and Heewon Oh. Cha and Oh share the undercurrent notion of time yet exhibit distinguished form of paintings: one explores consciousness of time and its surrounding relationship to the paintings through light mediums, and the other examines the meaning of abstract painting today- as it was rashly defined in the past- by weaving, a method that requires a set of rules.

Yuki Yamazaki recalls a memory of his childhood living in a constant fear of Tokai earthquake that has yet to occur. He was brought up in a place where such natural disasters coexisted in his everyday life. It is the past memory yet a possible future lingered with fear. Yamazaki brings this ironic complexity of time- a continuation of the moment that has passed- and translates into a visual context we can relate. The series of New Order are formed in two layers, an aerial photography of the artist's hometown as a base and a spread of 3D data in pattern as an overlay.

ONE FOUR is pleased to present Radiator Theatre, a solo exhibition featuring a selection of photographs by artist Ina Jang. The photographs are a continuation of the artist’s renown play of colors and shapes. Poetically playful and minimal, the on-going series of work exhibits story that is personal yet tangible much like words we speak and visualize. This exhibition is the first time Jang will exclusively show the newest development of her poetic display.
