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.

Storm in a Teacup & Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery link here.

Interview with Wendy for 774 ABC Melbourne link here.

Depleted (detail), 2010, refers to the mining and exhausting of the porcelain material kaolin used in the ceramic manufacture in Jingdezhen since the 1300s.
