The Art Riddler is a really intriguing concept, he wants to altruistically give back to artists. He genuinely wants to give a high quality exhibition opportunity to emerging artists in the pulsing city centre of Dublin. Studio 10 the venue in Wicklow Street Dublin has high ceilings and large bay windows overlooking the busy street below. A highly accessible location for anyone interested in viewing a gloriously curated collection of high quality art in Ireland today.
The exhibition opens Friday 7th at 6pm-9pm and runs for the weekend.
I am delighted to say that one of my sculptures “Lantern Flow” has been accepted and is installed in the glorious bay window on the first floor.
Lantern Flow , 17 fishing lines of porcelain pieces hanging and swaying from an acrylic disc of 37cm. The piece is approx 200cm in length.
The lanterns in the title are the seeds of the Chinese Lantern or Physalis Alkekengi plant. These long Plant stems where taken from Pauline’s beautiful garden last year and dried upside down in my studio. The seed heads have a strength that allows liquid porcelain clay to be applied to them and fired in my kiln. The organic material is destroyed but the clay remains leaving this wonderful memory of its presence. Porcelain slip when high fired has a delicacy but also a glass like strength as they sway and gently move in the air.
I hope people can get in to see this marvellous exhibition of work The Art Riddler has put together in Dublin for all to see. All sales are commission free to Artists at this exhibition.
I have undertaken a writing process for the month of September with the Artist Amy Kennedy, in which we look at our work through fresh eyes. We use a speed writing technique which is done daily ( for me in the evenings, for artists in Australia its their morning) I am half way through and really enjoying the challenges and enjoying the writing process and i feel its awakening a writing muscle in me which i needed to reawaken. Its been interesting and surprising sometimes and good to hear from other artists about their similar struggles and achievements. I will post again at the end of the process.
