Gallery Shop After Hours
16 November 2018
Brisbane-based ceramicist Chloe Gard returns to the IMA with the launch of a new collection of colourful handmade vessels, titled hide and seek.
After a recent turn to drawing, Gard has produced a new collection that translates her repeated abstract motifs into clay. Using a fauvist palette, Gard’s hand-built and thrown pieces are all painted with coloured porcelain. These playfully textural pieces will be available for the first time at the Gallery Shop after hours.
Join Chloe Gard for an intimate launch event at the Gallery, wind down while DJs Kurt Wildermuth and Nathan Sellin spin records, and find your own one-off ceramic treasure.
Chloe Gard is a Swiss-born Australian artist living and working in Brisbane. Gard originally studied photography and printmaking at Queensland College of Art, Brisbane. She thrives on creating with her hands, which lead her to investigate her fascination with the craft revival movement.
