Shiro Oni Residency Exhibition

My residency at Shiro Oni Studio has come to an end. After six weeks of creating work in countryside Japan and firing a traditional wood fired anagama kiln in the mountains close-by: me and 9 fellow artists had a group exhibition in the Brewery Gallery in Onishi. You'll see the exhibition poster and map below. Here's a link to the residency website if you'd like to know more about the place I've been living these past weeks: http://www.shirooni.com/

My participation at Shiro Oni Studio is supported by the Sainsbury Sculpture Grant (2016), established in memory of the late Madeline Olive Taylor through her estate and administered by the National Association for the Visual Arts (NAVA).

I will be adding details and photos of the work I made when it arrives back in Australia several weeks from now.

An incredible, inspiring experience shared with some beautiful people. Here's to the next one...

The Factory Exhibition, Iceland

I'm currently showing an experimental work, Marker, made during my residency at Listhús Art Space in Ólafsfjörður, Iceland (late 2015).

The group exhibition titled The Factory showcases work from a range of international artists,' with pieces expressing personal relations to, and perceptions of Iceland.

Showing from now until August 31st 2017 in The Old Herring Factory in Djúpavík, Iceland.
