Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre is pleased to announce the acquisition of two significant sculptural artworks by Australian artist Christopher Hanrahan. The two artworks were generously offered as a donation to the Liverpool City Council Collection by philanthropist Amanda Love in October 2015.

Christopher Hanrahan has a wide-ranging artistic practice which encompasses elements of drawing, printmaking, sculpture and installation. His practice stems from Minimalist art making principles that include the use of basic geometric forms, non-typical art materials, repetition in forms and an engagement with the viewer’s perception of space.

The two donated sculptures, Correction #1 (arête) and Correction #5 (arête), are experimentations about the art making process. Each sculpture plays with ideas of perfection, highlighting Hanrahan’s tendency to correct mistakes to the point of completely changing the artworks during the art making process.

These two sculptures, along with other artworks by Hanrahan, were first exhibited at Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre in the 2015 exhibition Solid State. Together they make a brilliant addition to Liverpool City Council’s growing contemporary art collection.
