Bec Smith - Peach Bloom

This brief exhibition was a feast for the senses. Bec uses a feather-light pinching technique, creating egg-shell thin vessels that seem to float above the plinth. Surfaces create a haptic desire to caress.

Often surfaces are 'iced', 'sugared' and 'glazed' with what temptingly looks like edible material. 
Part of this exhibition could be consumed, with floor plinths dusted with sugar and little piles of sugared rose petals to delight the tongue.

A ceramic oil diffuser filled the exhibition space with caramel or fudge smells - delicious. 

A clearly articulated exhibition exploring the relationship between food, vessels, blossom and sense of touch and taste from this recent RMIT graduate.

Dawn & Georgia set a pretty rigorous exchange of finished works that had a weekly turn-around. A new work was given as inspiration. The result is a aesthetically cohesive exhibition of 'the best' works produced from this structure.  Both artist's practice already lent towards a seemingly spontaneous sculptural outcome and strong palette of colour; making them a natural artistic match. The gallery listing explained that very few works were the combination of both artist's ha…
