Rock Paper Scissors

January 12 - March 17

January 12 – March 17, 2019
Opening Reception: January 17 2019, 7 – 9 PM

This exhibition presents works in clay, paper and textiles. Artists innovate on crafting techniques to create unexpected portraiture. These portraits range from representational to conceptual images and energising materials through detailed investigations, experimentation, and the integration of digital components or processes.

Exhibition overview: 

Fuzzy Mall’s larger- than- life sculpted textile art work integrates kinetic elements with quilting to create a sense of joy and momentum; multidisciplinary artist and writer Christine Negus’ employs humour and irony in Children of Stones, an absurd ceramic and audio installation; a rarely seen rug- hooked piece from Hannah Epstein (2018 recipient of the Melissa Evan Emerging Artist Award from the Textile Museum of Canada) walks the line between traditional craftwork and contemporary 3-D cartooning; Christine Kim intricately cuts and folds paper into mesmerising wearables sculptures; Christine Fry’s Industry Series questions the location of image ownership by drawing on corporate stock Mylar; Kim-Lee Kho’s A Full Heart Series hybridises digital processes into anatomical renderings of the human heart; Lindsay Gravelle inscribes narrative myths onto ceramic vessels; and Philip Hare’s playful , For Crying Out Loud questions the embedded meaning of materials.

This exhibition was curated in two parts by Lee Petrie and Katie Micak.
