A small respite from the slowcooking pressures of studio led Elliot and me to his parental unit's exhibition opening at Essence Gallery in Parnell.
Peter and Julie Collis are ceramic and glass artists, Peter mostly known for his familiar shaped ceramic vases. But I think it's funny to see the aesthetic similarities between parent and child. Elliot is also fond of organic shapes and strong pigmented colour (mostly with his paint works from last year...)
As for the haps with graduating exhibition preparations, everyone seems to be bunkering down for the upcoming stress-storm, hence the noticeable increase in tumbleweeds on this blog and the tepid writing. For that I apologise, but I do promise that a little bit of silence is necessary in the meantime. From picking up tidbits on the studio floor about what people have got planned for end of year, it sounds like the show is going to be huge. Five Weeks...
Keep Calm and Carry On time.
