‘WHITE OUT, WIPE OUT’ OLIVIA JONES
12 June – 1 July 2020 (Weekend hours: Saturday 13 June, 20 June, 27 June – 10.00am-2.00pm)
White out, Wipe out focuses on the positivity of humanity, bringing attention to sensations of experience. The exhibition is a development of ideas from a 2017 project ’Lonely Together’.
‘I considered how painting can embody visceral experiences in an abstract manner’. The layering of oil paint and disruptions to the surface physically express this exploration.
‘BROKEN EARTH’ NICOLE FRANCOIS
22 May – 10 June 2020
An investigation in ceramics and drawing.
Exploring memories of a family property in drought, “Broken Earth” examines contemporary issues of climate change on a drying planet. The vivid childhood memory of a seven-year drought is used as a lens to examine our current environmental crisis. Nicole works in clay and on paper to explore ideas of memory, place and loss, demonstrating the fragility of our natural systems.
All profits to go to Bushfire relief.
