We have had a great response to Suzy’s exhibition. It was lovely to see a big turn out at the opening and may pieces selling. Make sure you make time to view this exhibition as it is only up til Sunday. I will be adding more photo’s of work that is still available which you can view by clicking the link below.
“One Man‘s Trash” can be interpreted in many ways, but the initial inspiration for the name was the arbitrary nature of art appreciation, combined with my ongoing attraction to unassuming objects."
The work is all coming together for Brendan's exhibition at Art By the Sea. Following his very successful exhibition; "Navigating Everyday Spaces" he has carried on making these new pieces using brass and ceramics.
“The name of this exhibition was lifted from the title of one of my favourite books, “A Fine Balance” by Rohinton Mistry. In this book life hangs in the balance for 2 of the main characters as they live through a precarious existence. However all the way through the book lives a positivity and hope for the future.
In these works I have been playing with forms cantilevered on wire rods balancing from a single point on the wall. Each object and counter weight carry their own particular quality both physically and emotionally. The implication of many of these works circles around the topic of the way we live in our physical environment, and how we strive for a balance.
When you hang these pieces on their sculptured hooks you need to find the balance by moving the ceramic objects or sliding the brass sleeve to find the balancing point. I find this interaction with the pieces to be very satisfying.”
