Budget Lattice, 2015

Budget lattice, Pine & Karri, 140x140cm, 2015

Budget Lattice is a subversive version of the familiar privacy screening popularised throughout the short history of Australian urban alfresco architecture. This artwork is a minimalist homage to this vital piece of the Australian vernacular. It also seeks to reveal the cultural crossovers between budget Australian lattice and traditional Islamic architecture. It is proposed that this work is a departure point in the evolution of the bland aesthetic attitudes of urban Australia.
