‘Aleph’

'Aleph' by Hyland Mather
November 2016

The Jaunt & The Garage have teamed up to present the premiere of a new series of wooden sculptures by American-born, Amsterdam-based artist Hyland Mather opening Friday, November 11. 

At the start of September, art & travel project The Jaunt sent Hyland on a trip to Haifa, Israel with the sole purpose of finding inspiration. With no agenda & complete freedom, Hyland explored & sourced his new surroundings to learn more about Jewish traditions, the Hebrew & Arabic alphabet, a leaf called Khat and the fact that perhaps Shabbat doesn’t make for an ideal travelling day.

The result of this trip was a suitcase full of inspiration, which Hyland has translated into a new body of work including a series of sculptures, and a series of reclaimed wood collages inspired by the visual aesthetics of the Hebrew & Arabic languages. Aleph is a large-scale installation of these new works inviting the viewer into the abstract geometry and intricate minimalism of Hyland Mather’s wooden creations.
