‘Sequence’ was the debut
exhibition of sculptures by Hugh McCarthy held at .M Contemporary Gallery, Darlinghurst NSW in 2022.
The artwork consists
of irregularly shaped units made from oak, stacked on one another in a cohesive
manner to form eleven columns.
iteration uses familiar shapes and techniques you would typically see in Hugh’s
furniture making in a different context. These individual shapes combine in
vertical sequences to create a family of objects which are in dialogue with
each other, as well as the surrounding space.
distinguishes each sculpture are the different curves, angles, voids, patterns,
wood grain and the moments where components connect. The stacked and repetitive
format is an opportunity for Hugh to explore tensions and harmonies that occur
between units within a singular object.
