Petherick's multi-disciplinary practice considers media and material in a constant state of shifting in and out of any fixed body. His installations of sculpture, video/audio and "image objects" place emphasis on the grey areas that open up through systems of manifold production and translation, from one context or material to the next.

The devices, structural principles and parergon that surround or support an artwork become central to the work itself, as do the qualities of chance and misunderstanding that accompany acts of translation and process.
This month Petherick presents his “Glass Tables”, a recalibration of a recent video work in the studio 12 gallery.
