Titania Henderson | The Other

Titania Henderson’s exhibition The Other presents a range of ceramic sculptural installations in pure white Bone China that convey a three-dimensional engagement. A fragility and vulnerability resonate through these poignant paper-thin configurations, bringing a sense of clarity and freedom. These hand built works challenge the conception of Bone China as a material only suited for slip casting.

Art Exhibition previously on at Karen Woodbury Gallery in Melbourne precinct, Victoria, Australia.
From Wednesday 20 October 2010 to Saturday 13 November 2010
Launch Wednesday 20 October 2010, 6-8pm

Henderson’s method involves perseverance, technical proficiency and precision, as she creates her own language of rhythmic ceramic art. There is an inherent translucent character that appeals to elements of shadow and light within the works. This new body of work is based on ideas of the human conscience and larger philosophical ideas beyond the objects themselves and beyond language.

Born in 1945 in Holland, Titania Henderson arrived in Australia in 1956. She currently lives and works in Melbourne. In 2002 she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art) at RMIT, Melbourne and following this completed her Honours specialising in ceramics in 2004 at RMIT, Melbourne.
