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.
