Breaking Points is a continuation of Billy's investigation of the paper
stretching process traditionally used to make a smooth surface to paint a picture on. Billy has discarded the picture, and now uses architectural space as his canvas. The paper is positioned in place according to the anatomy of the gallery and then wet with water causing it to relax. The slack is then taken up, causing it to buckle as it dries and pulls tight.

For his show at Twentysix Billy has pushed the material limits of the paper further than he has previously, without it completely collapsing. The lengths are longer and wider, and there are more elements in one space than ever before. Once the yellow strip broke under its own tension falling elegantly over the two below, Billy knew the show was complete.

"This whole show is about resisting formal readings ascribed to art, and when the yellow collapsed under its own tension, flopping over the blue, a very strong form was created due to the paint having already stiffened the paper. This form is pure Process and Material with no artist intervention, and I'm not sure how to put language to that yet. There are many relationships and implications here that will take some time to get to grips with...."

Breaking Points is viewable from the street 24/7 at Twentysixconstablestreet until July 23rd.

Whistling Sisters Brewery and Fermentery100 Taranaki StWellington,6011 Map

The stone-crushing machines from the 1860 Otago gold rush - having ground to a halt - now lie rusting, fragmented and decayed. This story of environmental devastation is recalled from 8 uniquely different points of view. VUW architecture student William du Toit presents a series of drawings from his thesis 'The Machine Stops', which explores how architecture can preserve the dialectic narrative of these industrial machines. Applying the themes of fragmentation, layering, and notation, each drawing tells the story of site from a different perspective—often with multiple voices crying out at once.... See MoreSee Less
