Ordinary to the extraordinary
SALA Exhibitions are many and varied.
They showcase a host of Southern Australian artists in many eclectic venues.
Nicholas Folland is an artist who has a fascination for old crystal glassware, history, travel and the search for identity. These are all merged into a fascinating exhibition currently on show at the Art Gallery of SA.
This exhibition includes pieces from the colonial collection of the Art Gallery of SA. Which is fortunate to have a massive treasure trove of archival and stored historical art works to choose from.
Entering the newly exhibited works the observer steps into this world of crystal objects and sail boats within dimed light. Walled glass pieces give off an eerie light. The illumination seems to draw people to it.
There is also a recently published book that is devoted to Nicholas Folland. This publication coincides with the South Australian Living Artists (SALA) Festival. Written by Lisa Slade. Published by Wakefield Press.
