A new exhibition of unique ceramics by SAM MITCHELL. ‘One of Us Cannot Be Wrong’ (from lyrics by songwriter Leonard Cohen) includes work made by the artist during her six month residency in Invercargill as the William Hodges Fellow which culminated in the recent exhibition "There is a Crack in Everything...that lets the Light In" at the Southland Art Museum also from a Leonard Cohen song and making reference to Mitchell's current practise of paintings on perspex and, more recently, pottery. Hand-rolled plates and platters are painted in china blue with maritime characters, rough colonials as well as up-standing citizens such as Young Farmer of the Year and Miss Southland. Black doctors, spinsters, skeletons and oysters make up an outlandish parade as part of Mitchell’s latest explorations into object-making.
A SELECTION OF WORKS ARE FEATURED ON THE WEBSITE. PLEASE CONTACT THE GALLERY FOR A FULL CATALOGUE.
