Renowned Australian artists Ann Thomson and Joe Furlonger present a dialogue between cultures and artistic practices in the form of a group exhibition.  A highlight of this exhibition are the ceramics produced during an artist residency in Jingdezhen, the ceramic capital of China.  Thomson and Furlonger explore ceramic painting in the Chinese tradition, with a distinctly Australian sensibility.  The artists innate mastery of colour and form and proclivity toward the landscape refracted through the lens of traditional Chinese underglaze pigment on ceramic produces a unique and exciting blend of visual texture and cultural context.  Alongside these new ceramic vessels, Thomson and Furlonger display earlier ceramic works from their career.
