Paul Dew image

Paul Dew is a Melbourne based artist exploring work and life balance through large sculptural assemblages of a figurative, industrial nature. The artworks consider production roles within manufacturing contrasted with personal life activities and aims. Paul Dew draws on his own manufacturing production experience coming under economic and competitive pressures. The works reflect on priorities askew, tensions, overloads and fractured time in both contemporary life and the workplace. Industrial materials of structure and silhouette forms are contrasted to describe balance, counter balance and implied movement.
