'Cooked' at Lamington Drive

31st July, 2017

A new group exhibition of contemporary ceramics is on now at Lamington Drive in Collingwood.

Challenging the distinction between function and sculpture while incorporating an illustrative graphic style, Lamington Drive’s latest showcase, ‘Cooked’, has been curated in collaboration with artist Jane Sawyer, the director of Slow Clay Centre.

The bill of participating artists includes creative polymaths, who draw on their respective backgrounds in writing, drawing, painting, collage, architecture and sculpture. There’s pieces by Andrei Davido, Dawn Vachon, Grace Brown, Kenny Pittock, Madeleine Thornton-Smith, Mechelle Bounpraseuth, Susan Robey and Tai Snaith – we got a sneak peek when we toured her incredible home recently, check it out here.

Works on show will span everything from small-scale structures with finely rendered graphic detail, layered assemblages and wall-based reliefs to painterly large-scale vessels and humorous reproductions of utilitarian objects. Visitors can expect, ‘a wide variety of contemporary ceramics that challenge the notions of and blur the boundaries between function and sculpture,’ according to curator Jane Sawyer. ‘Each of the eight artists presented have a unique voice with clay, but some highlights are established maker Susan Robey, who has paved a pathway inspired by her architectural practice, and emerging artist Grace Brown’s graphic vessels that echo her love for Memphis style. We are also overwhelmed by the beauty of Dawn Vachon’s abstract and delicately glazed and coloured multi-piece installations.’

The gallery is run by our pals at , and there will off course be actual lamingtons to enjoy on opening night: Wednesday August 2nd, from 6 to 9pm!!
