We are pleased to announce an exhibition of ten collaborative artworks by Australian ceramicist Ros Auld and painter Tim Winters, to be exhibited in the office gallery space at Messums London.
The artworks are made from paper clay slabs, fired at a low temperature using coloured glazes by Auld and black underglaze brushstrokes applied by Winters. The works speak of the fragility of the inland Australian landscape and are displayed in box frames to emphasise this sense of containment.
“Landscape is my source- more the accumulation of recollected impressions than particular sites. From the detailed weathered surfaces and textures of the bush to the broader environment and influence of weather conditions there is endless reference material for reflection. My intention is to express both the strength and fragility of nature using materials from the earth.” – Ros Auld
Ros Auld’s principal work is in sculptural ceramics. She has exhibited widely and collaborated with other artists, most notably, John Olsen and Tim Winters. Auld studied painting and ceramics at the National Art Schools in Newcastle and Sydney and subsequently worked in the ceramic studio of the painter, John Piper, in England. On returning to Australia she taught visual arts and ceramics at tertiary level for a number of years before concentrating on her own work at her studio near Orange.
Tim Winters is a project driven artist, working across drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, 2D and 3D design, public artworks, and writing. He has had more than thirty individual exhibitions in Australia and the UK, including a major survey -The poetry of space – at Orange Regional Gallery, in 2015. The exhibition was accompanied by a comprehensively illustrated book by curator Andrew Flatau.
