Dog Years
Dog Years
This exhibition explores the themes of human interconnectivity through man’s best friend, the canine. The exhibition will also function as Jared Peterson’s solo Bachelor of Fine Arts exhibition. Peterson pulls from a vast array of influences to create sculptures. Peterson uses ceramics as his vessel to tell his story, with etchings, slips and glaze added before salt-firing to add texture. He also places great emphasis on the storytelling components of his art.
Improvisations On A Shoreline Theme
Improvisations On A Shoreline Theme
In the exhibition, Jenny Wilson recreates a trip to New England, where the natural beauty of the coastline had a profound effect on her. She described it as a “religious experience”, one that would influence her artwork for the following two years. The exhibition draws from the landscape, the colors, and the texture of the Cape, yet is undeniably abstract. Wilson refers to her style as ‘Abstract Landscape’, a style that emphasizes the use of texture in the paint for an added dimension. Drawing from print-making and pottery glaze techniques, Jenny captures the essence and spirit of the Cape without the confines of shape and realism.
