Caravan of Curiosities
Encapsulates a sense of journey, adventure or odyssey through the discovery and experience of places, people and curious things. Metaphors and synonyms of both ‘caravan’ and ‘curiosity’ are equal components of the theme. Within this theme are layers of interconnecting ideas: Our creative journey, luggage as metaphor for life’s travels, discovery of curious things; assemblages and collections we may gather; portraits of time travellers and amulets and talisman that protect. We are three tinkers, travellers and collectors sharing our journeys and stories. The artists’ present a wide diversity of 2D and 3D work encompassing assemblage, artist books, encaustic, painting, drawing, printmaking, amulets and a collaborative work of curious “Black Boxes”. The exhibition also includes two intriguing and interactive installations.
Artists: Nanette Balchin, Peta Lloyd and Emma Ward.
