ARID - Photography by Christopher Sanders

March 2023

South Australia is the driest state of the driest inhabited continent in the world. Arid fittingly describes the vast mountain chain situated in the north eastern part of South Australia – a place of grand visual splendour, changing mood and shifting landscapes.  This remote region of S.A. holds many culturally significant and sensitive sites, is part of land belonging to the Adnyamathanha people, and includes the Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park and the Vulkathunha- Gammon Ranges National Park. Over a two year period, Christopher Sanders has explored and photographed the Adnymathanha country, beautifully capturing ancient and mystical sites of the Warren Gorge, Arkaroola, and the Vulkathunha-Gammon Ranges. Opus30 was proud to present a collection of stunning photographs by Christopher Sanders.

October 2022

The exhibition entitled ‘Confluence’ will display work by Wayne Guest, Simon Lloyd, Vicki Mason, Nick Mount, Beatrice Schlabowsky and Prue Venables and their adventures across materials.

Contemporary craft practice often demonstrates skilled focus on a singular medium. Lifetime building of knowledge and understanding of one material encompasses history, technique, nuances, spirit, assumptions, and comprehension alongside general understandings of sculptural elements such as line, form, space and time. The drawing in of a second or third material to the work opens new doors of possibility. Sometimes it merely extends the limits of the original substance. For example, objects in porcelain and glass hampered by the risks and impossibilities of kiln firing and annealing can now be extended out into space through the addition of other materials such as metal and wood. Thread and textile additions to hard edged metal add a tactile softness, colour and texture otherwise impossible to achieve. The firing of glass enamels onto the surface of metal extends possibilities of colour and invention.

Such developments also bring learning challenges where former adept experience and knowledge is confronted by new techniques and materials. Through new modes of working, play and experimentation, a world of the unfamiliar and the unaccustomed is entered.
