Alicia Van Rhijn

A Sense of Being
gallerysmith Project Space

29 November - 8 December 2018

A substantial exhibition from this artist who complete 1st year ceramics at RMIT and in 2018, 2nd year ceramics at the National Art School, NSW. Evocative titles allude to personal events, memories, doubts and aphorism. Alichia's phenomenological investigations uses the vessel as a physical carrier of meaning. This surface is punctuated with small, whimsical objects that read as calligraphy or hieroglyphics, understood only by the artist but hint at a subconscious language.

The discipline of phenomenology may be defined initially as the study of structures of experience, or consciousness. Literally, phenomenology is the study of “phenomena”: appearances of things, or things as they appear in our experience, or the ways we experience things, thus the meanings things have in our experience. Phenomenology studies conscious experience as experienced from the subjective or first person point of view. This field of philosophy is then to be distinguished from, and related to, the other main fields of philosophy: ontology (the study of being or what is), epistemology (the study of knowledge), logic (the study of valid reasoning), ethics (the study of right and wrong action), etc.

Owen Rye

Grit & Grace

Latrobe Regional Gallery

3 November 2018 - 10 February 2019

A rare chance to see work of an artist spanning 1995-2018. Rye is a master of wood firing technique and these vessels display the play of wood ash with heat, clay body over form. In some instances vessels have been re-fired from one to thirteen years later. The trace of historical or technical advancement is not revealed in this exhibition installation. The placement of works is personal and formal, a harmonious parade of colour texture scale and pairings. What has Rye developed over this time frame is infinitesimal and illusive, subtle. 

Girt and Grace begs the questions, 'What does the maker treasure in a work?' 'When is a work complete?' 'Has this ceramics practice changed or developed?'
