New Zealand artist Shannon Novak, initially trained as a pianist, explores contemporary gay issues through sound, painting, sculpture and installation, with a focus on using geometric forms to explore and render his understanding of the interrelationships between sound, colour, form, time, space, and social context. He also examines the ways in which the plurality and tensions of gay desire muddy and morph geometrical purity and idealism.
