An exhibition of new works by Judy Watson and Yhonnie Scarce, Looking Glass is both a love song and a lament for country; a fantastical alchemy of elemental materiality—of earth, water, fire and air.
Watson’s ochres, charcoal and pigments, pooled and washed upon linens, will offer a natural affinity and synergy with Scarce’s glass works and their fusion of fire, earth and air. Together these artists present a panoptic and holistic portrait of country where the creation and experience of art is mnemonic for the lived, remembered and inherited history of the First Peoples.
Organised by Ikon and TarraWarra Museum of Art with curatorial adviser Hetti Perkins.
