The forest knows Where you are #7
The forest knows Where you are #7 by South Australian artist Ashlee Hopkins for Collect exhibition Making Spaces.
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:
Presenting work by Connie Augoustinos, Ebony Heidenreich, Ashlee Hopkins, and Kerryn Levy, with prints by Georgia Cheesman
In 2019 South Australian Printmaker Georgia Cheesman visited the studios of four JamFactory tenants, Connie Augoustinos, Ebony Heidenreich, Ashlee Hopkins, and Kerryn Levy. Inspired by the creative spaces these ceramic artists occupy in their time at JamFactory, Georgia documented their surroundings and translated them into intricate lino prints. These will be presented in the JamFactory Collect show Making Spaces, alongside works made by each of the four artists. Together the prints and ceramics give a snapshot into their creative studios.
*Any work sold from Making Spaces will be shipped upon the completion of the exhibition, on November 8th.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Ashlee’s craft based practice is rooted in the rigour of repetition but expands into spaces of spontaneity and solitude. Her training as a production potter revolved around the craft of reproducing a single object as accurately as possible in quantities of sometimes hundreds. Her recent works explore how ignoring this training can allow her mind and body to create new objects that stand alone - perhaps with similar counterparts but never copies.
Dimensions: 340 x 150mm
