STURM UND DRANG: UNDONE BY NATURE
In the third of our curated series, ‘Undone by Nature’, Patricia Adams and Therese Kenyon have joined forces to show recent works that deal with extremes of weather. Patricia incorporates actual snow and the crystalline structures of ice with her cyanotypes in ‘The Phaino’ series, Phaino being a Greek word for phenomena.
In her series ‘As Long as there’s Rain’ Therese pours ink or gouache into specially made paper trays. Pouring off and evaporation make a series of sedimentary images about aftermath from flood and drought.
Patricia Wilson-Adams is Conjoint Senior Lecturer in the School of Creative Industries, The University of Newcastle.
Therese Kenyon PhD is an artist, curator and a former Director of Manly Art Gallery & Museum. Currently an Eramboo voluntary Board member.
Opening Sat 14 October 2017, 2pm. Artist’s talks at 3pm.
Part of the Pittwater Artist’s Trail Open Studio 14-15 October featuring Eramboo studio artists Ingrid Bowen and Tric Tinder, 10am-4pm.

Join with other practicing artists to engage in discussing work practices, guided critique sessions, mentoring from peers, contributing to stimulating discussions about the conceptual basis of work practices, experimental concepts and methodology along with sharing upcoming opportunities for artists to showcase their work.
