Esther Stewart: Cartons

Work / Art

Esther Stewart has discovered the secret to turning a box into a work of art

These days everything comes packaged – often to a rather ridiculous extent. Using the net of a carton as inspiration, Esther Stewart has created a series of intricate and colourful wall installations for Rearview gallery. Based in Melbourne, Esther majored in sculpture and spatial practise. Cartons is an exploration of the constructed world around us, and she says her art “occupies a space between the functional and the purely aesthetic object.” I am never going to look at my cereal box in the same way again.
