Ros Auld: Adventures in Ceramics

14 December 2019 – 26 January 2020

This survey exhibition embraces some 40 years of Auld’s practice. From her studio set in the landscape near Orange, her explorations have grappled with transforming the mysteries of the ancient craft of ceramics into an expressive art medium.

Earlier work includes thrown and functional pots, informed by Japanese aesthetics, and salt glazed jars and platters, followed by the development of large painterly ceremonial style platters. The influence of primitive art is obvious in the development of sculptural pieces including wall-works and incorporates other materials such as steel and bronze. The later major works consist of large hand-built vessels and sculptures. These works are landscape based, expressing both the strength and fragility of nature using materials from the earth.

Collaborative works with other artists are also included.

Bill Moseley: A Lake, a Forest and the Dark Voice of the Sea

14 December – 26 January 2020

Bill Moseley combines video with the lyric mysticism of wet plate collodion photography in this exhibition of recent works.

Research video and still imagery will be taken from the historic brigantine ‘Soren Larsen’ on a voyage from Hobart to Sydney, then combined with wet plate collodion collage to present a darkly romantic narrative that loops past and present into an intriguing portrayal of our emotional relationship with the natural world.

The sea, the lake and the forest, as metaphor, share an ontological opacity. This project considers the implications and significance of the sensate world.
