  CONTEMPORARY  BRONZE SCULPTURE  

 

If my parents had had their way I would have been an engineer. Although I studied Electrical Sciences in my native Poland, I never completed my degree. I was yearning to learn a craft, to shape things with my hands. So, instead of fulfilling a parental ambition I became a silversmith. As Gdansk has a fine tradition in gold and silversmithery it was not too hard to find a silversmith to take me in. After three years of apprenticeship in Gdansk's leading workshop I passed my journeyman exam and shortly after I got my Master's Certificate. At the same time I was spending my evenings in a sculptor's studio next to my silversmithing workshop carving in wood and later creating sculptures in bronze.

In 1982 I migrated to Australia. The richness and beauty of Australian fauna and flora boosted my creativity profoundly and I became well known as a creator of many designs depicting Australian animals and flowers. From the beginning I was selling my works through Seasons Gallery in North Sydney, Beaver Gallery in Canberra and Maker's Mark in Melbourne. While living in Sydney I attended workshops with well-known sculptor John Gardner and made works mainly in bronze. Shortly after my move to Brisbane in 1988 I started to work in stone and operate now from my studio in Brisbane. Apart from bronze, I work in marble, granite, sandstone; and black Chillago marble is my favourite stone. In 1997 I stopped working as a silversmith and now I work as a full time sculptor.

Working for many years as a silversmith I developed a great need for details and even now when I sculpt on a large scale I cannot divorce myself from it. Although the amount of time I spend on each sculpture increases enormously, the more it takes the better. I guess, I want to enjoy every piece of stone as long as possible. I love to carve in marble the most intricate and crisp lines and lack of forgiveness of stone makes it more challenging. I create both figurative and abstract works and there are always several of them in my studio to appreciate.

CONTEMPORARY PAINTINGS  Opening JULY 8

Marshall Williams in his latest series of large paintings continues his fascination with the still and glass like surfaces 

which envelope the hulls floating quietly within their watery surrounds. The boats and the reflected imagery play 

across the surface in a symmetrical and frontal expanse. Subsumed in soft colour and glowing with luminous light, 

the works exhibit a mood of silent calm. Drifting and stationary, often as single hull or paired in close relationship 

to each other with a floating expanse of clouds above. Soft landscapes which echo the curve of the land now 

also make an appearance in this show. 

The mood and colour as much the subject of the works as the illusions of the image.

EXHIBITING at SOHO GALLERIES & ART PARK EXHIBITIONS SYDNEY 

John Gardner not only absorbs the culture in which he lives, but also investigates other cultures and successfully combines aspects of these disparate ideas.  He uses his images for resolution between cultures, ideas, and gender.  He combines iconic representations of the natural world with shapes and symbols from ancient and modernist concepts and philosophies.  While his aesthetic is modern, he lends qualities of the poetic and mythical to his geometric, monumental forms.  He draws on the art of ancient civilizations, totemic indigenous ritual art forms, and contemporary artforms.  The technical combination of bronze, stainless steel, glass, aluminium, granite and sandstone constantly refer the viewer to archetypal references and impart an aesthetic that has universal appeal.

The sculptor undertakes the creative process knowing all connections between idea and object must be made and remade throughout the work. Furthermore, John Gardner is aware that while the work comes into being at a certain point in linear time, perceptions of the work will subsequently evolve or be modified as circumstances change.

Gardner uses the language of form, space and surface in making silent works that speak loudly as comprehensive ideas.  Harmony, balance and rhythm.  Gardner's work explores these concerns through a highly organised visual language.  On another level, the viewer is encouraged to look outside the physical representation of the object into a metaphysical realm where other meanings are adduced.

Contemporary Bronze Sculpture

Robin Holliday  (1932 -2014)

 Robin Holliday was born in the British Mandate of Palestine in 1932, the youngest of four brothers. The family moved to England in 1935, and then in 1939 to Ceylon, where they lived for four years during the war. They were also in South Africa (1 year) and Gibraltar (3 years) He returned to the UK in 1947 and completed his education at Hitchin Grammar School and Cambridge University (1947-1955). His double first class degree in Natural Sciences was followed by a Ph.D. in genetics in 1959. He then worked in the John Innes Institute near Hertford, UK, where he developed the molecular DNA model widely known as the "Holliday structure" or junction. This is a ubiquitous DNA structure formed whenever the breakage and rejoining of chromosomal DNA occurs . From 1962-3 he spent a year at the University of Washington, Seattle, USA. In 1965 he moved to The National Institute for Medical Research, Mill Hill, London, where Peter Medawar was Director.

    He continued his research in microbial genetics, but then took up studies of the mechanism of biological ageing, using human cells grown in culture. In 1970 he was appointed head of a new Division of Genetics. This attracted visiting scientists from all over the world: some for its work on DNA recombination and repair, and others to cellular ageing. In 1973 the well known Soviet dissident Zhores Medvedev came to work on animal ageing for a year, but his passport was confiscated, and he continued his research at Mill Hill until retirement. With his student, John Pugh, Robin Holliday developed a theory for the control of gene expression during animal development which was based on the chemical modification of DNA. Several years later this became of central importance in the new field of epigenetics. In the 1970s and 1980s he was invited to many scientific conferences around the world: in most European countries, in the USA and Canada, in India, Japan and Australia.

    In 1988, following medical advice, he resigned from his position as Head of Division and accepted a senior research position with CSIRO in Sydney, Australia. Instead of running a large laboratory he now had a small one which concentrated on epigenetics and also cellular ageing until he retired in 1997. His interests in ageing had widened and in 1995 he published a book Understanding Ageing, and later Aging the Paradox of life (2007). These explain the biological reasons for ageing.

     He had been elected Fellow of the Royal Society in 1976, Foreign Fellow of the Indian National Science Academy in 1995, and then Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science in 2005. He  published six books, and about 270 scientific papers. After retirement he took up a long-standing interest in sculpture which initiated, in effect, a second career. His many bronze sculptures are exhibited in and around Sydney, and have also been exported to the USA and UK.

His  interest in sculpture dates back to the l960s and l970s when he attended classes at an Art School in Hertford, Herts, UK, and also at the Camden Art Centre, Finchley, London. Two of his  instructors were the established sculptors Mark Harvey and Jesse Watkins, and three others
had worked as assistants to Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth and Eduardo
Paolozzi.

Robin  worked with stone, wood, clay and plaster and  obtained instruction in art metalwork, and experimented with mixed media.

Group Botanicals Exhibition

I delight in the beauty of flowers.

They enchant me.

The colours. The patterns.

Even the movement of petals in a gentle breeze is magic.

Like dancers under the spotlight, in the glow of the sun.

Their frangrance fills the air and takes me back to another time, another place.

A distant memory.

As little girl playing in a tulip patch in Denmark, where I discovered their beauty and fragility as I trampled the garden bed in delight.

I explore, looking for flowers throughout the seasons to capture unique moments. Fleeting moments in the early morning or late afternoon, when sunlight and shadows dance in perfect harmony to create the images I transpose onto canvas.

An image of a magic moment heralding the changing light as it plays amongst the petals of beautiful blooms."
