Silk Scarf | Orbit 5 by Ham Darroch | One of Twelve
This stunning 100% Silk Scarf features the artwork Orbit 5 by Ham Darroch. A perfect gift of wearable art to adorn your neck, upstyle your hair, or hang on the wall in that special space.
Canberra-based contemporary artist Ham Darroch works in sculpture, performance and drawing. His artistic practice draws on recognisable objects of both everyday life and of art history to create abstract works that, through careful referencing of shared histories and experiences, appear effortlessly comforting and familiar. He studied at the Australian National University and University of New South Wales, and has subsequently worked as a studio assistant to the renowned British artist Bridget Riley.Widespread admiration for his art continues to grow. In 2017, Ham won the Rosalie Gascoigne Memorial Award for contemporary art.
In Orbit 5, the mixture of sharp edges and contrasting colours show an artist deeply attuned to the optical effects of colouration and geometry. The cobalt arc pronounced by a yellow border appears at first to be setting while enveloping mountainous discs revolve around it. Reminiscent of a landscape, these forms present as inanimate objects yet through the artist’s intuitive grasp of geometric colour, they come to rest within the image as subjects of a domestic still life.
