Storm in a Teacup

History Always Repeats, July - August 2015

Wendy Garden has curated my Honours installation Porcelain Wall - Ode to an Obsession into the exhibition Storm in a Teacup. The exhibition contexturalises Australia's tea drinking culture with historic objects & paintings alongside work by contemporary artists. It's good to be reminded that Melbourne's fervour for a warm beverage was once for tea not coffee. Artists include: Charles Blackman, E. Phillips Fox, Rosalie Gascoigne, Danie Mellor, Anne Zahalka, Vipoo Srivilasa & Penny Byrne.
