Canyons: Ebony Russell

May 31 @ 6:00 pm - July 7 @ 4:00 pm

Combining ceramic sculpture with the practice of cake decorating provides Ebony Russell with the tools to manipulate porcelain into words typically seen on celebratory cakes, a cultural practice used for birthdays, weddings and anniversaries. In this series, Canyons, Russell has constructed small craggy mountains from layers of piped porcelain, rising from a piped phrase or term. The forms may be Gothic, but the colour scheme is predominantly pink and white, leaning into the gendered territory of female childhood.

Kids Sugar Sculpture Workshop: Sunday 26 May, 10am – 12pm (5-9yrs) & 2-4pm (10-15yrs)

Opening night: Friday 31 May, 6-8pm
