Michael Gittings – Cerulean Dawn of Phosphene Night Terrors, 2022
Part of Michael Gittings' most recent collection: 'when the night ripped a hole through Eden'. The piece forms part of Michael's imagined, alternate Eden – something darker and more magical, where the plants eavesdrop on sleeping minds and feast on the dreams and nightmares of living things, small and large.
Michael Gittings is a creative practitioner working with steel. His practice spans furniture design and sculpture and uses industry and artisan treatments and technologies to form and finish metal products. His distinct style arises from an innovative approach to metalworking, incorporating techniques at the very forefront of modern science and those that have been around for millennia, harking back to pre-industrial practices. Michael was raised in Albury, Victoria, and established his design studio in Naarm/Melbourne in 2016. He has exhibited throughout Australia and is found in both private and public collections, including the NGV collection.
