work located at West Circular Quay
Faith–by–Numbers speaks to the trivialisation of faith as a hobby. The work is predetermined, contrived by line and number: verse and passage. Our art–making aligns the practice of faith with the rehearsal of a pastime, one that can be picked up and put down, coloured in or left blank. Viewing the work from various distances creates different perspectives. From afar, completion is assumed. Up close, completion is encouraged.
Samuel Dunn is a designer, actor and student of the College of Fine Arts, UNSW. John Sheehy is a student of Arts/Law at the University of Sydney. John and Sam have been best friends since high school. Their friendship was forged by their common interests in schnitzel with cheese, large Canadian ski resorts and small French villages, negotiating the internal walkways and sky bridges of the Sydney CBD, and skipping school assemblies to work on their visual arts bodies of work. Faith–by–Numbers is their first collaborative work.
