Presented in the form of a flip book, this artist’s book explores themes that remain prominent in Hobbs’ practice.* Dazzle architecture, disruptive pattern language, kaleidoscopic forest features, folded paper and movings parts are some of the elements that inform NO FUSION.
*His practice is informed by the complex, often obfuscating, visual language used to construct cities in South Africa. The artist is keenly involved in Johannesburg’s evolving status as an apartheid-city-turned-African-city, working predominantly in etching, linocut and monotype to draw connections between World War I dazzle designs* and urban defensive planning used in cities today.
Hobbs has been in collaboration with David Krut Projects since 2010.
