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

the art life
from Sharne Wolff October 10, 2014

The notion of authenticity in the stories of Australia’s natural history has been the concern of emerging artist Caitlin Casey’s practice to date. On graduating from the National Art School last year, Casey’s body of photographs probed her findings about the young Charles Darwin’s nineteenth century expedition from Sydney to Bathurst. The inspiration for this exhibition came from her recent discovery that Australia’s highest peak, Mount Kosciuszko (previously known by it’s anglicised name, Kosciusko), swapped names with the nearby Mount Townsend – actually the higher of the two peaks.

Casey’s first solo show comprises thirteen photographs. Multiple black and white images drawn from the digital archives of the State Library have been uploaded, downloaded, manipulated and overlapped with original colour photographs taken by Casey in the Kosciuszko region. Despite their somewhat convincing appearance, the eventual landscapes are completely artificial. We already know that the act of photography stretches the truth. Without making any secret of doing so, Casey’s work both exposes the idea of the fake and simultaneously adds a further layer of critique. Acting as a visual historiography her images critically examine the flux and mutation of truth as it’s absorbed into our histories.
