Crafted Surfaces

North Shore-based artists talk about how ideas, design and craft values fuse to make desirable and thought provoking objects of art.

Join Willoughby City Council's Curatorial Assistant Miriam Foley in conversation with artists Seong Cho and Robyn Kennedy. These North Shore-based artists discuss their processes and the inspiration behind the artworks for their upcoming exhibitions.

Seong Cho is a printmaker whose wood block processes combine influences of both Eastern and Western cultural practices. Her current subject matter reflects on the natural world and humanity's complex relationship with it. Delving into recent natural events, Seong talks about the impacts on 'self' from both an ethical and well-being standpoint. Robyn Kennedy focuses on employing collage techniques within the textile and photomontage disciplines. She will talk about her passion for surface decoration and embellishment, and the important role sustainability takes within her practice.

Seong Cho's exhibition Terrestrial Symphony is scheduled to take place at Incinerator Art Space from 6 to 17 October 2021. Embellished by Robyn Kennedy will be on exhibition at Art Space on the Concourse from 6 - 17 October 2021.
