8th May: Bilk Gallery (Canberra), Johannes Kuhnen ‘Painting in Stone‘ [link]; “For this exhibition Johannes Kuhnen has developed a new body of work which departs from his iconic aluminium and titanium oeuvre. The new series of brooches, pendents and rings are inspired by the Colour Fields paintings of the 1940’s and 50’s as well as the work of minimalist artist Robert Mangold, whose large and bright geometric constructions share a similar aesthetic to much of Kuhnen’s smaller in scale work. He has used found sedimentary and volcanic rocks and stones as his principle material and created flat planes with subtle combinations colour, using the natural appearance of the stones as his palette.“; until 5th June

11th May: e.g.etal, Anna Davern ‘Impressa‘, as part of Melbourne International Design Week [link]; “Davern’s work features pictures of people from Australian political and social life as a means to dissect clichéd images of Australian identity.

15th May: Mr Kitly, ‘Intimacy & crafts – Objects by South Korean makers‘ [link]; “Intimacy & Crafts is an exhibition that looks at exploring a particular kind beauty in crafts, beauty that is often identified with use, the beauty of intimacy. This beauty of intimacy is one that comes from the outlet of expression from the makers themselves, hand to the object. Machined processes cannot replace the craft of the hand and the diminishing hours of labour often result in products becoming heartless objects that lack significance and longevity.“; until 31st May

The results are both accessible and intimate.
