I went to the opening of Victor Greenaway' exhibition at Skepsi on Swanston on Friday; went back for more yesterday. Simply exceptional. I have not seen work of higher skill and creativity; and I've seen a lot. The high thin walls with a simple thrown line spiraling up from the base prove a master in complete control of his medium. The walls of the vessels obviously not trimmed thinner or joined to gain (pieces over 400mm heigh and millimeters thin) height. The glazes, beautiful and a texture just begging you to hold and feel; though with such a delicate translucent porcelain I dare not. There's also a number of paintings in the exhibition by Victor. These alone could satisfy for an exhibition, but I must say I was far to overwhelmed by the ceramics to think to give the paintings enough attention.
From JULY 1 – JULY 25.
Skepsi on Swanston is at: 670 Swanston Street, Carlton VIC 3053.
Tuesday to friday fom 10:30AM - 6:00PM Saturday from 12:00PM - 6:00PM.
