2 Openings at the Last Mountain Lake Cultural Center – Sunday April 11th, 12.30 to 3.30 “As a collector of things, it is the small elements that most people overlook that inspire me most. It is by close observation of plant life that I have noticed how within each structure and environment patterns are created and respected. It is how individual elements, while independent, can also be used like building blocks to create larger units of pattern, which in turn can create even larger patterns exponentially. The repetition of the + (cross) forms a grid system is a representation of microcosm in macrocosm”.
The exhibition Motion Captured, Motion Denied presents the works of young, Saskatchewan contemporary ceramic artists Jody Greenman-Barber and Zane Wilcox. Although both artists work in very distinct and different approaches from eachother, a commonality between their works is how each artist addresses the concept of motion. Pushing the boundaries of wheel- thrown traditions and approaches, Jody’s work concentrates on the gestural qualities of clay and exaggerated wheel-thrown lines and forms and therefore embodies motion. Zane’s work also pushes boundaries of handbuilding with clay through creating solid clay forms that embody a sense of immovability and stability, and thus serve as a reference point for the motion or physical movements of the viewer within the gallery space, as he or she moves around the works to take in the different angles and perspectives that they offer.Last Mountain Lake Cultural Centre, Regina Beach
