Surprise! this show features NO ceramics. I am breaking this blogs parameters with this amazing show by Louise Pararmor.
The reason I loved this show and must record it here is that the expression of scultptural issues, range of material and the virtuotic outcomes are so strong.
Found materials combine into joyous outcomes from the diminutive to the the enormous. In the entry room are Paramor's works with concertina paper. Majestic and baroque vessels that directly relate the the forms in Titanic Jam Session, Supermodels, Stupa and Boom Town.
Apologies for the lack of labels for which series related to which image, I was so enthralled by the work that I ignored all text.
As an extra treat listen to the History of Plastic on Rear Vision http://radio.abc.net.au/programitem/pewQ1NdA9L?play=true
