The artists in COUNTERPOINT have created works that emphasise, clarify and contextualise their practice by contrasting or juxtaposing different elements. Like a musician who combines different melodic lines to generate new relationships, these visual artists use their technical skills as metalsmiths to contrast one visual element with another. Encompassing a range of opportunities to juxtapose traditional ideas, materials and techniques with contemporary interpretations, inventions, and re-imaginings each artist has embraced the theme as a catalyst to re-energise their practice. Developed from a theme of contrariety in balance, each artist has created works that emphasize or clarify their intent by contrasting or juxtaposing different elements.
Curated by Professor Ted Snell, from work by the Jewellers and Metalsmiths Group WA, COUNTERPOINT groups their approaches into a dynamic exploration of contrapuntal experimentation.
Exhibition Opening: Wednesday 3 November 6 – 8pm
Get it on!: Saturday 6 November 2 – 4pm
‘Get it on!’ is an interactive event that invites the public to try on the jewellery. After an introduction by Curator Ted Snell, the artists will be available to tell you about the works, where the inspiration came from, and offer an insight into the working process.
Exhibition opened by COUNTERPOINT Curator, Professor Ted Snell, AM CitWA, Edith Cowan University.
Gallery Hours: Wednesday – Saturday: 10am – 4pm
