3rd August – 14th August 2016
Saint Cloche gallery Paddington presents celebrated artist, Ali Wood, together with popular ceramicist, Mary-Lou Pittard, in a beautiful duo show, Speaking Without Words.
A language of deep symbolic meaning is spoken in the exchange of flowers. For thousands of years have been given as tokens and symbols of love, friendship, affection, intentions, accomplishments and sympathy. The beauty in a flower evokes unexpressed thought and feelings that are sometime difficult to find words for – a concept that will be explored by a painter and a ceramist.
This new body of work revisits Ali’s fascination with the floral still life as an emblem of life and beauty, and is redolent of the fleeting nature of flowers and the passing of time. With these works Ali is pushing the limits of her own visual aesthetic and venturing into abstraction. Ali works from her urban Sydney studio, drawing inspiration from her other home in country Braidwood, and its surrounding gardens.
Mary-Lou Pittard is a professional potter who has been practicing since the early 80’s. She is widely known for her highly decorative functional stoneware, and is often inspired by the plants in her garden. Mary-Lou works from her studio set amongst the beautiful gum trees of Eltham, Victoria.
