The Kirra Galleries is currently hosting a new group exhibition entitled 'Narrative in Glass', which celebrates the art of storytelling, personal experiences and social commentary through extraordinary sculptural works in glass.
Opened by internationally renowned Australian glass artist Maureen Williams on Thursday 1 May 2014, the exhibition showcases the work of nine talented artists:
Lisa Cahill explores the vast beauty of the ocean, which can be serene and calm, and at other times, wild and brutal.
In his latest work, Peter Nilsson's theme is "to catch or get caught". Peter is working with aquatic motifs and in this exhibition he will concentrate on situations where the figures are catching their prey, or they are caught by a force more powerful.
Ruth Oliphant recreates an essential aspect of the modern city based on her experiences and memories. She explores the use of layers, bringing them together to create more complex landscapes and cityscapes.
Lorry Wedding-Marchioro uses imagery derived from intangible elements sourced from poetry, music and the natural world. Often a word or phrase will inspire a work, the meaning resonating with her artistic sensibilities.
Convergence With Nature by Lorry Wedding-Marchioro
Originally from a boatbuilding background and with a strong passion for the ocean; this series of work by Ben Young symbolises a journey of life depicted by objects based around the ocean. Each piece can figuratively express a certain part of life's journey whether it be dropping anchor and settling, sailing off on travels or navigating obstacles.
