Sabbia Gallery at Sydney Contemporary 2022

Sabbia Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by eight leading and emerging Australian and Indigenous artists, pushing the boundaries in their creative fields of contemporary ceramics and glass.

The exhibition includes installations, sculptural pieces and significant artworks by these artists, further challenging the perception of their materials. The invited artists have taken the opportunity to further explore their practice and present their most recent and innovative series for Sydney Contemporary 2022.

The exhibition space will be curated with three dimensional small and large scale-artworks displayed on the wall and plinths to create an immersive and luminous experience.

The walls within our 2022 exhibition will include large-scale neon and glass wall mounted panels by NSW artist Cobi Cockburn which refer to an infinite horizon and the beauty of unspoken energy; large-scale blown and kiln formed glass installations by Melbourne artist Holly Grace that seek to create a cultural narrative that maps together humanity and nature, history and natural history; and playful installations of liquid porcelain by South Australian Honor Freeman that quietly commemorate the smaller moments that are a constant rhythm of the everyday.

The exhibition space includes the dynamic sculptural glass work of Adelaide artist Tim Edwards focusing on drawing, the process of drawing and how objects are seen, perceived and remembered; a beautifully crafted large installation of lidded forms of shifting colours and textures by Brisbane artist Ulrica Trulsson drawing on sensory experiences of sand and the patterns created by movements of the tides; sculptural and organic ceramic hand built forms by the exciting new Indigenous artist Alfred Lowe who explores themes of Country informed by his intimate knowledge of the central desert landscape; and whimsical painted and blown glass vessels by senior artist Nyanu Watson and emerging artist Cassaria Young Hogan from Ninuku Arts.
