NZSOS 2018

Aaron McConchie

What inspires your art practice?
The everyday, the marginalised parts of our lives and society that get overlooked. The less obvious communications we send and receive in every waking hour. Taking the time to look at the mundane and to be rewarded.

What materials do you work in?
I work in a a vast range of media, whatever fits the context of the work and the lifespan of the concept.

Briefly describe your artwork for NZ Sculpture OnShore 2018.
A large steel work resembling industrial roof vents, offers a path from what lies beneath to the world we share. We share a collective burden to listen to what is beneath our feet and do our best to understand what/those that we cannot see.

Where are the public most likely to see your artworks outside of NZ Sculpture OnShore?
Most works are in private collections but there is one at Auckland Airport sculpture garden.

Where did you study?
Whitecliffe College of Arts and Design & University of North Dakota
