Surface Vector is a new solo exhibition by sculptor and designer, Dan Lorrimer (NSW). His work is driven by a deep understanding of materials, industrial processes and a keen sense of exploration through making. Dan also explores notions of movement, energy, solidity and illusion through minimalist sculptural forms, often located between the artificial and natural world.
For Lorrimer, this solo exhibition is the culmination of two lines of sculptural inquiry, Fragment and Splinter Array. Each body of work focuses on notions of motion, force, illusion, growth and decay through abstract minimalist metal forms. Experimentation and development of metal forming techniques are at the core of Dan’s practice. The unforeseen outcomes of experimenting and process-driven work is often the catalyst for new artworks and new methods of making - leading to dynamic and skillfully made work.
With a degree in Sculpture from the Australian National University, Dan has since diversified his work, significantly developing his skills across a wide range of technical areas, specialising in metal forming. He works across scales in metal, from sculpture, object design through to custom prototyping and fabrication services.
Lorrimer’s thirst for learning and developing unique processes is woven through all he designs and makes, continually striving to refine and resolve making processes to be the best they can be. He has exhibited widely across Australia and is currently represented by Flinders Lane Gallery Melbourne.
