'counterpoint' invited artists exhibition - Jewellers and Metalsmith Group of Australia (JMGA WA)

Artists: Kadri Alekand, Max Ball, Barbara Cotter, Annette Ellson, Blandine Halle, Hannah Jago, Louise Gore Langton, Bethamy Linton, Jill Parnell, Felicity Peters, Brenda Ridgewell, Aaron Seymour, Sultana Shamshi, Jacquie Sprogoue, Claire Townsend, Tineke Van der Eecken, Katrina Virgona, Robin Wells, Alister Yiap, Lynndy Young

The artists in 'counterpoint' have created works that emphasise, clarify and contextualise their practice by contrasting or juxtaposing different elements. Like a musician who combines different melodic lines to generate new relationships, these visual artists use their technical skills as metalsmiths to contrast one visual element with another. Encompassing a range of opportunities to juxtapose traditional ideas, materials and techniques with contemporary interpretations, inventions, and re-imaginings each artist has embraced the theme as a catalyst to re-energise their practice. Developed from a theme of contrariety in balance, each artist has created works that emphasize or clarify their intent by contrasting or juxtaposing different elements. Curated by Professor Ted Snell, from work by the Jewellers and Metalsmiths Group WA, 'counterpoint' groups their approaches into a dynamic exploration of contrapuntal experimentation.
