Collecting Convergences is a solo exhibition by Lilly Buttrose featuring new works produced over her two month studio residency at Nexus Arts. Through site responsive sculpture Buttrose seeks to understand the influence that the organic environment, and the cultural variables that are inherent within it, have on ones concept of identity. The new work exposes a deeply personal discourse between the tensions of finding sentiment in new place and notions of dislocation within those surroundings. Collecting Convergences represents in visual terms the confluence of Buttrose’s notion of self, her family and her relationship with the South Australian landscape.
