The use of everyday materials in Garth Gratrix?s work hones in on the core attributes of minimalism. There are household paints, metal and concrete; but it is the playful use of language and innuendo ? such as painted wooden rods with suggestive names and two polished lead pipes called ?Nein inches together? ? that moves this work into the sphere of ?queerness?– Andrea Allen, Corridor 8.
