Living Treasures: Masters of Australian Craft
The works in this exhibition explore the significance of everyday objects through multiple sequences of forms in porcelain, with additional elements in metal and wood. The forms are simple and elegant, with a minimal colour palette and create a distinctive visual language.
Venables work has shifted over the course of her career from decorated surfaces and utilitarian function to forms that merely suggest use and are devoid of overt surface decoration. The stillness evoked by her work belies its richness and complexity. A Touring exhibition by the Australian Design Centre.
