Robert and Tao Delves + One
Wed 06 Feb - Thu 21 Mar
LAUNCH: 6PM FRIDAY 15 MARCH
From the bayside suburb of Aspendale, Melbourne, Father-daughter duo, Robert and Tao Delves undertake a six-week residency at the Tanks, practicing and teaching techniques in drawing and painting onto slip cast ceramics.
This residency will allow award winning sculptor, Robert and emerging artist, Tao to collaborate for the first time, to create new works that respond to, what is to them, new surroundings and a new network of artists and audiences.
Their studio in Tank 4 will double as an exhibition space and workshop venue for the creation of drawings on paper, figurative sculptures and slip cast ceramic cylinders onto which both artists will paint directly, before being kiln fired at the Cairns Potters Club.
Learn with Robert and Tao techniques in clay, ink and carbon blocks on paper; a symbiotic process of movement from 3D sculpture to drawing.
