Showtime by Ann and Gerry O'Connor

Maleny, Sunshine Coast Area

24 – 29 October 2017 - 

Free Entry

Art on Cairncross, Maleny presents Queensland ceramicists Ann and Gerry O’Connor who bring an air of performance to their respective works of sculpted white clay and raku. An exhibition of skill, humour, thought and joy.

This remarkable couple have been lifetime partners and share a studio, but have maintained their individual approaches to clay.

Gerry O’Connor works in the Western approach to Raku creating intriguing figures and mesmerising glazes. “It is the branch of ceramics that fires my imagination and suits my personality. I love its directness, vigour and colour. I create more decorative and sculptural items” he explains.

Ann O’Connor uses white clay as the basis for her intricately sculpted figurative works and bright underglazes to great effect. There is joy and mischief in much of it and sheer wonderment at the detail.

“Showtime” is a new collection of works drawn from burlesque to baroque, but also encompasses the meaning of the ceramicists putting themselves on show too. All of it is entertaining and engaging.
