As a small boy Grant Sutherland enjoyed taking apart mechanical objects and reassembling them. In his first solo exhibition, Grant continues his childhood explorations playfully utilising found and salvaged objects from the past, breathing new life and humour into pre-loved everyday objects and discarded mechanical and industrial parts. Grant’s past as a cabinetmaker of bespoke furniture, can be glimpsed in his use of old patinated wooden objects in most of his robotic assemblages. He enjoys bringing these unrelated objects together to create sculptures with their own distinct personalities.
