Exhibition Text

The Review features a suite of hydrangea paintings by Philip Kilmore as well as the compelling botanical focused works of Sue Hawker and Neal Palmer.

Peter James Smith’s recent art residency in Antarctica provides the subject for his characteristic style combining the landscape with over-drawn text referencing scientific enquiry and the history of human endeavour.

Vicki Fanning’s figurative application and use of flamed glass is unique in the manner it melds humour and contradiction. Chris Bailey is represented for the first time with two works which “exploit the contrast between rough and polished surfaces” and that demonstrate that the “forms of his work are exactly matched to the nature of his material.” (1) Bailey links his splendid work to important carving traditions.

There are distinctive wall sculptures by Neil Dawson and Megan Huffadine. Andy Leleisi’uao’s emergence as an artist of national significance is demonstrated in a signature work from the Pac’ceania series. Paul Martinson’s Jam Jar Fishers is a surreal joke, delivered with aplomb and artistic mastery. Reuben Paterson is represented by a new screenprint and a recent glitter painting and Dick Frizzell provides two new screenprints.

The Review also includes new glass by Stephen Bradbourne and Mike Crawford plus the iconic ceramic jugs of Christine Thacker.
