Blurring the lines of creative authority

Objects of Ideation features five artists working with the ceramics process who blur the domain of creative authority and individuality. McInneny-McRae, King, O’Farrell, Minogue, Blake are all either RMIT recent graduates or current students. They also share a distinct aesthetic palette.
The gallery boundary has become a space in which to construct formal, sculptural vignettes about colour, texture, line and plane. Moving around the gallery, it is clear there is no single author, confirmed by the lack of an exhibition list. Whether this was oversight or intentional, the effect is a sense of singular outcome from the hand of many makers.
