By Carolyn McDowall ⋅ October 13, 2014
Clever creative ceramic works by artists of renown is always a feature of the Robin Gibson Gallery at Darlinghurst in Sydney. Robin Gibson relishes artists who both explore and passionately pursue curious and compelling imagery, which appeals to all ages, all cultures and sensibilities. Representing artists such as Stephen Bowers and Mark Thompson and Karen Choy, he celebrates the unique techniques they have each developed based on modern and contemporary concepts that influence the world of visual arts.
Currently ceramicist Karen Choy has a wonderful display of works on view until October 22, showcasing the ‘year of the horse’. They enchant, drawing on elements from the Chinese history of ceramic wares and their nation’s cultural development, to provide appealing snapshots of animal fables and folklore. They showcase stunning colours, shiny glazes and bear motifs gleaned from historical, floral and fauna sources and they bring both beauty and pleasure
