Renae Pennicuik

 Clay tests your ability to control it as a medium and I find that very exciting. The many steps from
raw clay to fully fired ceramic ware are vast and challenging.
In this body of work I have enjoyed exploring primitive firing techniques, including pit firing and
sugar firing. The spontaneous and somewhat uncontrollable outcomes these techniques propose
are by far the most gratifying aspects of my work. In particular sugar firing, where a purpose built
kiln is fired to the required temperature using gas. Sugar is then strategically introduced into the
kiln it then burns creating a carbon filled atmosphere that is absorbed by the pots. This technique
makes for the most magical of outcomes.
I have also included wheel thrown functional and nonfunctional wares and some sculpture. I enjoy
many aspects of working with clay and wanted to showcase the vast outcomes achievable with
different clays, glazes and firing techniques rather than limit myself to any one technique.

Kate Cotching: We Lost And We Won: June Exhibition

An exhibition of paintings and soft sculptures that highlight everyday struggles and achievements.
Exhibition Runs from Thursday 8th of June untill Saturday 1st of July.
Exhibition opening celebration Wednesday 7th June 5:30 pm.
Kate Cotching, Books for building, 2015, Oil on paper.
In a sport obsessed society the exhibition playfully challenges the way we see victories, by acknowledging some of the most difficult and personally challenging activities people face.
The embroidered and heat moulded fabric sculptures were produced while undertaking the Artist In Residence program through Ashfield Council in Sydney 2015 and the works were first shown in Ararat Regional Gallery. Inspired by the self-professed, but otherwise unacknowledged accomplishments of the artist's friends and family, these sculptures de-construct the shape and notion of the trophy. By embracing these individual stories of generosity, adventure and strength while producing the works, the sculptures seemed to develop of their own accord.
The seven paintings on show depict altered sporting trophies alongside everyday objects, which have been discarded and given to a second-hand store, representing the difficulties and frustrations that come with day to day life.

Artist Statement
I could speak about my struggle at school due to my dyspraxia, I could speak also about my social awkwardness or the drama surrounding me and my relatives, but in the end, none of these are important now, because I just enjoy what I became.
I'm Nicolas, French artist, with a fine art degree and multiple experiences in art. My dreams always lead me to travel far away from my home, now that I have left France to visit Australia, my dreams have turned into my home.
My artwork is a mix of dreams and fantasy, but mostly because I am after all a  story teller, I like to link each character to a meaning of my existence, my own mind becoming their hive. Once I need them to tell a story they become the actors.
My main character is "Gostpas" the "dream walker" blue eyes shimmer and through his journey, make you travel across my strange world.
