Long-time friends, southwest sculptor Mary Knott and painter Juliet Stone, have united with a mutual love of space to present the Liaison Exhibition.  

Juliet uses encaustic, a wax based painting medium, and pigments to create translucent layers that acknowledge the vast Australian landscape and sense of natural phenomena. 

Trees and boats are central to Mary’s object making. After more than a decade of living close to the bay, Mary’s works are imbued with a sense of calm serenity. The small narrative sculptures depicting isolated boats stranded on a rock are metaphors for feeling alone, derived from working in isolation. 

By chance Mary met a bronze caster in the early 1990s and he convinced her to commit ephemeral works made from cane, papier-mâché and twigs into editionable bronze castings. The sculptures in this exhibition illustrate both disciplines.
