Sun Studio – online gallery

Posted by ofay on March 16, 2015 in Art |One Comment

I invited two artists to install their work alongside my recent experimentations at Tent 29 for the Castlemaine State Festival open studio program 2015. The exhibition is on until Sunday March 22nd in Chewton, a short drive from Castlemaine and 120kms from Melbourne, Victoria.

King Lake based ceramicist Yvette De Lacy installed an exhibition of new stoneware thrown and hand built works titled ‘Aquifer.’ De Lacy says, “ the work is about the drawing of water for life and the environmental impacts of when water is scarce.” The bottle shapes are inspired by child hood memories of digging up ink and medicine bottles. More of De Lacy’s work can be found at http://www.mountainclay.weebly.com or contact the artist on yvettedelacy@hotmail.com

Melbourne based sculptor Annee Miron has installed a woven cardboard habitat. ‘Time borrowed’ reconstructs found cardboard boxes (fragments of their contents, origins and destinations visible) into the banks of a muddy dam complete with a raveling / unraveling yabby burrow. For more information on Miron’s projects in 2015 and for commissions please contact the artist anneem@aanet.com.au

I have installed a range of recent works made using a combination of historic and contemporary photographic processes to survey flora. A series of works using the anthotype process of making light sensitive photographic emulsion from plants turns the subject of noxious weeds literally into the work. There are gum bichromate works broken down to primary colours to explore the possibilities of single pigments and ghostly gum prints where no pigment has been added at all using just the chemical to make an image.
