Sabbia Gallery is pleased to present Kaleidoscope, the solo exhibition by Amelia Lynch, the 2018 winner of the Sabbia Gallery Exhibition Prize for National Art School Graduates in Ceramics.
‘When I interact with the tactile qualities of clay I create a physical connection to my work that help me to express the meaning that I am aiming to represent. Together, with the combination of my vessels, and my Master of Fine Arts (MFA) ‘Kaleidoscopic Series’, I aim to provide insight into how my interaction with clay has evolved. These two series work in a sense collaboratively because in my vessels I experimented with size, shape and texture which were all elements that I wanted to focus on moving forward as an artist, testing the boundaries of what I could achieve. In my MFA I found a way to test those boundaries by trying to visually depict the micro and macro landscape of Australia. This included trying to represent things such as; textures of eucalyptus bark, wattle flowers, concave rock pools and the reflections of water in bush creeks. My Kaleidoscopic Series explores various different depictions of my interaction within the Australian landscape whilst also expanding on the previous work I had done with my vessels’.
