Having only just completed his MFA research project on ‘Imaginary Science’, Jack Stahel is keen to present The Diagrammatic Organ, a new body of work that continues his ongoing investigation into how the mind thinks about itself. The act of drawing always finds itself somewhere between human-made tools and actions, and the organic processes of a natural organ. Tools, objects and actions, are unavoidably integrated into our cognitive processes. They impact on how those processes unfold, as well as how those processes understand themselves. Inside the mind, the organic and the constructed coalesce indistinguishably. Action is organic, growth is assembled, and both are able to make sense of each other.
Jack Stahel is a Sydney based artist, focused primarily on the amalgamation of drawing and collecting as a single creative medium, and its applications for examining the mind and understanding our experience of it. Stahel graduated from UNSW College of Fine Arts with first class honours in 2012, and just recently completed his MFA research degree. He exhibits regularly in Sydney, in both group and solo shows, as well as occasionally interstate.
