Chichi Array is an extension of Carolyn Wigston’s painting practice. In this work Wigston explores formalist ideas and devised artiface towards the transformation of architectural space. Through the re-structuring of existing images and spaces with abstraction and paint she has manipulated geometric and architectural forms to offer a new interpretation of a known location. The Contemporary Art Tasmania courtyard provided an opportunity for the artist to trial these ideas on a large scale and to conceive an alternative, playful reading of the space. Wigston was awarded a Bachelor of Fine Art, Honours from the University of Tasmania, Tasmanian School of Art in 2007. Since this time she has been a researcher for Arts on the Edge, Edge Radio, Hobart, a member of INFLIGHT ARI, Hobart and involved with the development and management of the Stable Gallery, Moonah. Recent exhibitions include: Frequency (2015) and Re-Construction (2012), both solo presentations at Penny Contemporary, Hobart, TAS; 10 Years 10 Artists, Henry Jones Art Hotel, Hobart, TAS (2014); Story of the Creative, See Me, NY, USA (2013); New White Gallery, Melbourne, VIC, curated by Melanie Thorne (2009) and Unsustainable Weight of Place, INFLIGHT ARI, Hobart and Watch this Space, Alice Springs (2008).
