JAMFACTORY ICON 2019
ANGELA VALAMANESH:
ABOUT BEING HERE


JamFactory’s Icon celebrates the achievements of South Australia’s most influential artists working in craft-based media. Inspired by the symbiosis between science and poetry Angela Valamanesh’s art works elicits intrigue and a strong sense of personal investigation, as she manipulates seemingly familiar botanical and parasitic forms in beguiling and unusual ways. Primarily known for her biomorphic ceramic sculpture, this exhibition also celebrates the artist’s evocative drawings, watercolours, and mixed media works from her developing style of the late 1990s until present.

CLARE BELFRAGE:
A MEASURE OF TIME


Throughout her career, Belfrage has maintained a vibrant studio glass practice and is known for her distinctive artworks in which complex patterns of fine glass lines trace her forms. Inspired by the repetitious patterns found in nature and the woven lines of textiles, Belfrage is particularly drawn to the layered rhythms that mark growth, change and the passing of time. Curated by Margaret Hancock Davis.
