and Hello World!
The new Arikui website is up and running.
From now on all my sculpture and graphic art projects in series form will be collected and curated here under the Arikui moniker.
Why you may ask?
It gives the serial artwork a distinct identity from the many other types of artwork I make in the studio and a part of my interest in making sculpture is the status of art objects as visual tools, hence use of an industrial orientated aesthetic in the artwork processes, materials, Arikui site and machine plates etc…
And the Arikui?
Arikui means ‘anteater’ in Japanese, the giant anteater is an interesting beast, individualistic, skilled and possibly eccentric, but tenacious free-range investigator of his chosen territory – a suitable avatar then.
