‘Close to Hand II’ @ First Site Gallery

14 08 2013

It’s been a busy few days of exhibition visiting. While seeing the Wondernamel 2013‘ at First Site Gallery, I also made sure I also saw the other show in the gallery: ‘Close to Hand II‘.

The exhibition is accompanied by a booklet with artist statements – I always find that understanding more about the thought process, and even material and making process, enhances my perception of the work.

The participating artists are all RMIT postgraduates from object-based practice (including ceramic and sculpture I think, it’s not just gold and silversmithing):

  • Justine Austen
  • Helen Dilkes
  • Bin Dixon-Ward
  • Jessica Donelan
  • Mary Hackett – the photo accompanying the formed pieces is spectacular
  • Robyn Hosking
  • Pennie Jagiello
  • Tassia Joannides
  • Danli Sun
  • Renee Ugazio
  • Sarah Wallace – I liked her ‘Plains of Grey‘ brooches
  • Sun Woong Bang
  • The Pearl of Nutfield

See my previous posts on the 2011 show.

Apologies for the low-detail post … I fear I may be suffering art fatigue (I’ve written about four exhibitions today, brain is a bit wonky now!).

Close to Hand II‘ is at First Site Gallery until 16th August 2013.
