Livin’ the Dream
Livin’ the Dream is a surreal collection of contemporary ceramic installations. Each, in their own way, examine the mystifying logic and tactile sensations of the subconscious. Dreams of food are suddenly alive with a nostalgia. Fear is probed with spears of porcelain and woven fragile nightmares. Colour is contorted in paintings of light and glaze. Works presented are by emerging artists; Angela Butler, Scott Duncan and Rachael McCallum, who in each have studios at Kil.n.it Experimental Ceramics Studios.
Opening Wednesday 7th June | 6–8pm.
Exhibition continues until Sunday 18th June.
Gallery open Tuesday–Saturday 11am–6pm | Sunday 11am–4pm.
The atmosphere is tense: moving and unchanging. We're not really going anywhere.
Angela Butler is a contemporary artist who lives and works in Sydney, Australia. Butler graduated with Honours (1st class) from UNSW COFA and is currently a studio artist at Kil.n.it Experimental Ceramics.
Scott Duncan works during the day as a Chef, making ceramics every other night. Duncan has a history of exhibiting cartoon-realist paintings and lately has made new grooves in the ceramic medium.
Rachael likes to form abstract expressionist pieces as rope, clay and glaze are paints to compose. McCallum promotes her perspective of authentic expression in ceramic; manipulating its gravity and liquidity through installation, performance and painting.
Rachael studied at National Art School with an honours year, 2013, majoring in Ceramics, minor focus on colour theory and aesthetics.
