I was rather excited this week when vases of mine featured on fab.com sold out almost immediately after the site went live with them. First time I have had work on an online store....most encouraging!

BEASTS OF BURDEN
Opening on Monday, 21 October at 18:00
Exhibition closes on 14 November at 17:00
In Still Life co-curated by Chantal Louw and Sarah Walters, a collection of ceramic objects by 12 ceramicists becomes a sculptural landscape. The curves and angles of the whole are read with clarity while the individual is displayed. Still life an exhibition of ceramic forms, some functional, some not, has been curated into an exhibition installation. The display allows the individual pieces to oscillate between functional object and sculptural form.
Jo O’Connor employs the Long Gallery with a collection of portraits. Using wood as the primary medium, the individual faces have been simplified, rendered in oils onto the wooden surface. The wood grain acts as both a support and a camouflage creating a tension whereby the individuals painted move between blending into the natural environment and being visible.
Robyn Denny presents Beasts of Burden in the Artsstrip. This series of work engages with the shock, beauty and pathos of the biological contingency. By evoking a theme of violence and brutality versus fragility and vulnerability, a dynamic paradox is animated through the use of ink & gouache.
These are my works for this exhibition. Although they look like 2 dimensional paintings in the images depicted on the blog, they consist, in fact, of individual ceramic vessels which make up an installation.
Titled Homage to Morandi I and II, they are inspired by the Italian painter Giorgio Morandi (July 20, 1890 – June 18, 1964 )and in a way, are Morandi-type paintings come to life!
