George Paton Gallery, Melbourne, 2016.
“Ripping, Planing, Coping, Sawing draws attention to the work of the hand within the vanishing world of hand tools. Are we losing something as the skilled use of the hand becomes redundant in an age of mass production and power tools?
The ability to use hand tools was actively fostered until the latter part of the 20th Century, with boys and girls being taught their respective skills through careful instruction.” *
