Vase Vessel Void
Curated by Brian Kennedy, Vase, Vessel, Void
explores the evolution of the functional to abstraction through figuration. Kennedy's curation is a response to works that Oliver Sears has either collected or been interested in during the last twenty years. While the exhibition has a largely Irish focus there will be works by artists from other countries represented.
The exhibition looks at the movement from still-life to the functional, and towards abstraction in both fine and applied arts. This dialogue through objects by Gallerist, Oliver Sears and Curator, Brian Kennedy includes a broad range of two and three dimensional works.
The exhibition coincided with the general assembly of the International Academy of Ceramics guaranteeing it an international audience of artists, writers, critics, private collectors, museum and gallery curators and educational institutions.
