Pattern and Place
The Zimbabwean born ceramic artist Clare Unger, who has lived in Sydney for over 20 years, integrates hand stitching into her ceramic process to create the subtle yet rich surfaces on her functional ceramic pieces. Clare has been inspired by a collection of familial textiles, inherited from her mother, in which simple stitches are used as a form of mark making that is as creative, innovative and individual as a drawing or painting. Clare uses the same simple stitches found in her textile collection to create the intricate patterns which decorate the surface of her work thereby connecting her to her family and to her memories of her childhood home.
Kobie Bosch is a South African-born painter who has been living in Sydney Australia for close to two decades. Her work reveals a fascination with both pattern and place: how to integrate the external natural world of birds and flowers inside our homes remains at the centre of her work. She does so using colourful patterns, peppering the rich compositions with detail and energy. Bosch creates on her canvases places of beauty, boundless imagination, and bold playfulness.
