Dean Smith: Møns Klint

– till August 24

The artist says: “The ceramics and paintings created for this exhibition have emerged from my residency in Denmark in 2018. This body of work is a continuation of my themes involving fragile, impermanent environments and mirrors the work I made for Pink Terraces in 2017. I was interested in visiting South Zealand in Denmark, in particular the chalky cliffs of Møns Klint to use as a conceptual connection to the once beautiful silica landscape of the Pink Terraces in New Zealand: connecting two fragile sites, one tenuously existent, the other non-existent, at opposite ends of the Earth.”

For all those who sincerely beleive photography is a ligitimate art form this is a must! -Ed

Please note, the obviously incorrect spelling of the word ‘photo’ is not my doing. It just goes to show that I am not the only one around here who can’t spell, and these people have been to university…………for most of thier adult lives!



until Saturday 24 August

 Artwork by three Australian contemporary artists who work across a variety of media, yet all embrace luminescent materiality in aspects of their work. The exhibition explores the nature of visual perception, light-induced sensory experience, temporality, transformation and interplay between minimalism and monumentalism.
