Far greater than merely an architectural allocation, the studio is a laboratory for experimentation, for testing things out, for seeing how things behave. The Melting Point of Reason assembles works by a selection of artists who work with fields of energy, material exploration, and uncertain processes, as a kind of conduit between the studio or laboratory and the gallery space.

To June 13 Andrew Rogers: Come to the Edge. Melbourne sculptor and installation artist, Andrew Rogers, is internationally renowned. His best known endeavour, ‘Rhythms of Life’ is to date the largest contemporary land art project in the world. In Come to the Edge, Roger’s new series of thirteen works, tests the boundaries of what is technically possible with the medium of stainless steel, assisted by computer-aided design software (CAD) and 3D modelling. The resultant geometry of the forms is complex, with the patterns giving a sense of dynamic motion. The artist revealed that “It has been interesting to work with the most complex technology. But it is not about how the work was created. What is compelling is that we have created something that is aesthetically and emotionally evocative.”
June 20 to July 26 Deborah Halpern: Mosaic. One of Australia’s most celebrated sculptors, known for her exuberant mosaic work returns to Mossgreen to unveil her latest series of work.
