Inspired by a trip to an ancient Tasmanian rock shelf of tessellated pavement, ceramic artist Shannon Garson captures the constant rhythmic push and pull of the wrack zone – the boundary space between land and sea. Here, waves unfurl the secrets of the ocean onto the shore, washing up seaweed, stones and treasures. Shannon’s hand thrown and exquisitely painted vessels quietly reveal these flows whilst also mirroring the ancient geological scars and crevices that criss-cross the rocks. Through her works, Shannon asks us to consider how these liminal zones reflect our own continual shifting experiences and reality.
“…I want this work to encompass more than the details of the subject matter, I want it to connect with the feeling of being in a landscape, from the lens of a human being surrounded and engulfed by a place.” – Shannon Garson, 2024.
Opening Event: Thursday 8 February, from 5.30pm.
