Exhibition: Finding Nature's Rhythm @ Craft ACT: Craft and Design Centre
In 2013, Christine Atkins was awarded as a winner in the Australian Craft Awards in the categories of Lighting, and Best Use of Glass. Her practice has continued to evolve and change since then, culminating in nine new works which form Nature’s Rhythm. Nature’s Rhythm explores the interaction between light, water and glass through a combination of wall-hung and installation works. The exhibition comes after a research trip to Japan in 2013, where Atkins delved into the connection Japanese culture has to nature, specifically exploring the wabi-sabi methodology and the construction of Japanese zen gardens. Atkins continues to push boundaries and explore innovative new techniques with her work, with this exhibition proving once again that she is a talent to watch. Nature’s Rhythm will be opened by Emeritus Professor David Williams AM at Craft ACT on Thursday 13 February, 2014 at 6pm.
