Artists Jo Victoria and Stefan Gevers will open an exhibition at Suki and Hugh Gallery in Bungendore. Entitled ‘Water Shadows’, the exhibition will show the latest works in porcelain by Victoria (Mossy Point) and watercolour paintings by Gevers (Melbourne).
Victoria’s porcelain works are delicate, light and translucent. She uses carved-out lines, marks and holes to portray environments etched by the ocean.
‘My creative practice is inspired by the ocean and the weathered ecosystems at land’s edge. My work explores balance, interdependence, vulnerability and resilience, and reflects on the ocean’s capacity to soften, pierce, inhabit and reclaim’. – Jo Victoria
Inspired by the drama of light and inherent patterns in nature, Gever’s contemporary watercolour paintings also display a lightness of touch. With delicate but deliberate lines directing the compositions there is an element of unexpectedness. These are familiar landscapes, but made new, refreshed.
‘This work is about visualising landscapes and working from memory with Lake George, NSW in mind. Exploring the beauty, challenges and opportunities this area offers.’ – Stefan Gevers
