We’re excitedly anticipating this year’s Sydney Contemporary. At the James Makin Gallery booth this year will be Annalisa Ferraris, Patrick Dagg, Sally Walk (featured), Elizabeth Barnett, Toby Raine and Jasper Knight. In the coming weeks we’ll be featuring each of these artists, giving you a taste of what’s ahead.
This week’s featured Sydney Contemporary artist is Sally Walk. A Melbourne-based ceramicist working with clay for over 25 years, she has exhibited extensively both nationally an internationally and is a member of the prestigious UNESC International Academy of Ceramics. On her Sydney Contemporary collection, Walk states:
“I am fascinated with patterns in nature, from microscopic imagery to the wiggly insect lines in tree bark. I notice patterns in human nature too, and this has always been a fascination for me. My work is an articulation of these observations, combining sculptural aspects with the vessel. Dots in my patterns have become three dimensional to create voluptuous mounds linked with a pattern of carved line work. Each is a combination of wheel throwing and hand-building using a mid fired clay.”
Sydney Contemporary runs from 9-12 September.
