The Rubicon: solo exhibition at Belconnen Arts Centre, Canberra, ACT

We presented a major exhibition at the BAC Arts Lounge of original ceramic pieces inspired by the historical personages involved in the assassination of Julius Caesar. If Brutus gave a dinner party the night before, who might have been invited? Julius Caesar, Augustus Caesar, Mark Antony, Cleopatra, Porcia, Calpurnia, Cicero… Over 2000 years since the murder, and their names are still familiar to us today. 

 

“A certain seer warned Caesar to be on his guard against a great peril on the day of the month of March which the Romans call the Ides; and when the day had come and Caesar was on his way to the senate-house, he greeted the seer with a jest and said: “Well, the Ides of March are come,” and the seer said to him softly: “Ay, they are come, but they are not gone.” From: ‘Lives of the Noble Greeks and Romans’ (a.k.a. ‘Parallel Lives’), Plutarch (Lucius Mestrius Plutarchus). Written c. 98 AD.

 

Opening Address: Ms Andrea Ho, ABC 666 Radio, Canberra.

Dedicated in loving memory of Brian Privett 06/08/47 – 24/08/15.

‘BeLonging’ Exhibition at ANU School of Art Foyer Gallery, Canberra ACT

 

We participated in the BeLonging exhibition, as a member of the Australian Ceramics Association, held as part of the Australian Ceramics Triennale. This exhibition encouraged the artists to draw inspiration and meaning from their surroundings, engage with notions of ‘belonging’ and explore changing attitudes to our ever-evolving community.

 

Chinese miners arrived in Australia when gold was discovered at Ophir in 1851, bringing with them material aspects of their lifestyle, including pottery. When the miners returned home, they left behind glimpses of their life in the archaeological record, including small, celadon-glazed soy sauce bottles. Such items were once common, but are now rare. This bottle is a modern rendering of an original celadon bottle, using stoneware and our own high-fire glazes, executed in a painterly fashion, to represent the landscape of Ophir in bushfire. It represents our respect for the unknown production potter who made the original bottle. SOLD.
