THE TEN CUBED COLLECTION
Ten Cubed is a private art collection open to the Public. It’s on the Malvern Road in Glen Iris in an old shop front, that’s had the high- end gallery make over. We all love a make over. It’s a beautiful, well-proportioned space.
Last night we were there to celebrate the presentation of a major body of work by Tim Silver. Tim loves making very precise casts of objects and figures. Then, after all the painstaking, laborious work involved in getting it just right….. it gets all messed up. The crayon cracks. The body defrosts. The penis (being an extremity) melts away first, becomes liquid and falls, in a slushy pool of penis pigment all over the polished cement floor. So it’s the push and pull effect between really anal, compulsive, attention to detail and in some sense, the forces of nature. The will of man versus the shit that happens.
The Ten Cubed Collection collects the work of 10 Artists over 10 years. This is the type of ongoing support that few artists get to experience, and we look forward to enjoying the impact it will have on the ambitions of their work. Long live private philanthropy ! Natalie Thomas
