Living Treasures: Masters of Australian Craft \ Prue Venables
Acclaimed ceramicist Prue Venables is the ninth artist in the Australian Design Centre's series Living Treasures: Masters of Australian Craft. Prue Venables' sculptural artworks possess clarity, luminosity and a quiet beauty.
The works in this exhibition explore the significance of everyday objects through multiple sequences of forms in porcelain, with additional elements in metal and wood. The forms are simple and elegant, with a minimal colour palette and create a distinctive visual language.
The exhibition monograph designed by Ian Robertson includes essays by Prue Venables, Alison Britton OBE and Neville French with photography by Terence Bogue. The publication offers a rich insight into the depth and dedication of Prue’s practice, and the exquisite and graceful forms that result.
