Description

Ash and Bone: Lucy Quinn
Floor Talk and Morning Tea

10.30am Sunday 20 August 2017
Redland Art Gallery, Cleveland

Ash and Bone is an exhibition of lead crystal sculpture and works on paper by Lucy Quinn. The Brisbane-based artist's works are developed through a process of collecting and responding to found objects and texture – both man-made and natural. Bone, insect hives, coral and rock formations, as well as material culture linked to personal memory, are recurring sources of inspiration in Quinn's practice. She imbues meaning and power on these objects through their reinvention, arrangement and categorisation. Ash and Bone includes new works inspired by the landscape and coastline of the Redlands and references taxonomy, evoking physical and aesthetic responses such as desire, fascination and revulsion.
