Felix Gill: An Interrupted Place

The city has been an uninterrupted place in my life.

“I collect stones from the street and sticks fallen after storms as I wander around. These become the materials and elements in this series. The stuff I collect filters through the process and is interrupted.” Felix Gill

The city has been an uninterrupted place in my life. I am in love with urban places and this was confirmed with me as I travelled. Maybe it’s a connection with the street, its art, architecture and access – the ease and convenience of high density living. From this urban forest I have taken the basic elements for these works. Not just the flotsam and jetsam of life to be reused, but also inspiration from form, colour and texture.

The ideas for an interrupted place, began while I was the artist in residency at Sturt Craft Centre in Mittagong. I had struggled with reconciling this beautiful semi-rural place: I was alone in a studio and felt it keenly. I noticed the distance from my city life and I looked at how I could connect the two.

This place and this time is a constant inspiration for art, I struggle to think of an example of art that excludes being made in a place and at a time. With an Interrupted Place I tried to keep this uninterrupted idea at the forefront while I made. I collect stones from the street and sticks fallen after storms as I wander around. These become the materials and elements in this series. The stuff I collect filters through the process and is interrupted.
