5th October: Katherine Bowman ‘What I saw when I went away‘ [link]; “What I saw when I went away (5-24 Oct) draws on Katherine’s recent travels to New York City, comprising a selection of subjective, abstract ‘souvenirs’. Through these objects, Katherine explores the idea that when we travel to see things, what we really see is ourselves. The projection of self on to what you see, experience, and ultimately what we create is central to Katherine’s philosophy. This exhibition is a reflection on how travel and new experiences inform the creation of original work, and how the act of seeing becomes the instigator of the creative process. In these new works are traces of the experience of travel, interpreted in an entirely subjective way.“; until 24th October

A candidate for Honours at Sydney College of the Arts, ‘Luxie’ is an extension of her current research into the nature of ‘luxury’ in the 21st century.”

18th October: last day for Castlemaine Art Gallery, BUDA Contemporary Australian Silver & Metalwork Award [link]

20th October: Studio 20/17, Zoe Vaness ‘Autonomous Jewellery‘ [link]; “In the mid-twentieth century British psychoanalyst Donald Winnicott developed his theory of the transitional object to explore the significance of the child’s use of the blanket or teddy bear to sooth the anxiety of separating from the mother. Winnicott’s transitional object as well as qualities of his writing like playfulness, simplicity of language, and an emphasis on paradox and contradiction inspires my doctoral research of the sculptural dimension of jewellery. Through the paradox of autonomy this exhibition examines the idea of jewellery as simultaneously supplemental and self-sufficient, as forms that are both separated from and connected to the body.“; until 7th November
