Us Two is a joint exhibition of paintings by Marian Alexopoulos and ceramics by Pam Jackson. It will be on display at The Gallery Mount Macedon from 3rd March to the 5th April.
Marian says they have a mutual eye for colour and texture but with different interpretations. With her recent paintings Marian has taken a leap into a brush-free zone, applying and manipulating oil paint and wax with a range of alternative tools. She finds it a liberating way of achieving interesting abstracts. It is basically a process of applying, removing and reapplying, creating a history of layers.
In her ceramics, Pam has sought to achieve forms that radiate a sense of serenity and purity. She has been experimenting lately with ways of introducing elements of colour upon a base of Southern Ice porcelain. These new works, while retaining typical delicacy and translucence, show an emergent infusion of colour, which she says is informed by Marian’s paintings.
You can meet the artists on Saturday 7th March from 2pm. The Gallery opens from Friday to Tuesday 10– 4pm
