Here is a “Heads Up” on three different artists who have headed-up in the name of art.
Sarah McConnell ‘Dropped Heads‘ (2008) [Ceramic 140 x 80 x 18 cm overall] from Access Gallery exhibition, Bayside Arts & Cultural Centre in 2017 – ‘Clay at Firbank‘ which was a survey exhibition of high quality ceramic work produced by Firbank Grammar students. The exhibition celebrated learning and craftsmanship within the medium of clay, showcasing works at various stages of learning, including the use of clay to create conceptual works for the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) level.
Rosemary Laing ‘Remembering Babylon #7′ (A collection with Stephen Birch 2003) [Type C photograph 55 x 84 cm] from ‘One Dozen Unnatural Disasters in the Australian Landscape’ at Tolarno Galleries, Melbourne, 2005. Laing (Born 1959, Brisbane Queensland) now lives and works in Sydney. She originally trained as a painter in the late 1970s and began incorporating photography in the late 1980s. Since then, Laing has produced project-based photographic work, often cinematic in vision and real-time performance and physical installation rather than digital manipulation.
Ron Mueck ‘Mass’ (2016-2017) National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne. Comprises 100 synthetic polymer paint on fibreglass [550 x 1480 x 5010 cm]. Mueck (born 1958, Melbourne) is an Australian-born hyper-realist sculptor. Inspired by the human skull ‘Mass‘ has reminiscences with Dutch still-life and the vanitas painting genre of 16th-17th centuries. See further information about Ron Mueck in my earlier post.
So it would seem, (based on the above), that if not placed correctly – heads will roll!
