I was selected as part of the Australian Ceramic Association’s group exhibition ‘BeLonging: Embodied Commentaries Inspired by Place’, held during the Australian Ceramics Triennale, 2015, ‘Stepping Up’. The works were all under 15 cm in size and exhibited at the ANU School of Art Foyer Gallery, ACT, for the duration of the Triennale. My work, ‘Marrickville, father and child’ (in the image foreground), “refers to my personal sense of belonging. Living in suburban multi cultural Marrickville, Sydney, with a new baby. Walking the local streets I have become familiar with the suburbs layering of cultures and histories. Documenting the front gardens, and its slowly disappearing lemon and orange trees, figurines, urns and architectural fetaures. My work loosely references the English Staffordshire ceramic tradition, celebrating the suburban and the domestic.”
Works from the exhibition, and works in progress in my studio for the Marrickville series.
