Light and Substance by Robyn Campbell & Kirstin Guenther

Exhibition and Shows

24 May 2024 to 7 Jul 2024 Once Only Event

Robyn Campbell and Kirstin Guenther have a three-decade connection as artists, bound by similar conceptual approaches and aesthetic sensibilities.

Kirstin uses transparent silk fabric, translucent kozo paper, heavy watercolour paper and plywood with a combination of ink, watercolour, oil pastels and acrylic paints. She works with tools, sourced from the region surrounding her studio such as Casuarina fronds, feathers and grasses, to apply marks. Kirstin is interested in natural forms such as the catenary curve, waves and particles, and how time and motion create unique images.

Robyn trained as a glass artist. This work uses the refractive and reflective qualities of cast glass, combined with the strong forms and patinated surfaces of aged, mainly metal, objects. She is a collector and these old, accumulated bits and pieces become part of her artwork. The objects carry a hidden history. It is important to Robyn that, within the artworks, the collected pieces are added to, but otherwise remain unchanged. Robyn’s work was supported by the Creative Australia during a residency at Canberra Glassworks in 2022.

Whilst Kirstin’s and Robyn’s work contrast materially, technically and in their approach; the interplay between light and substance, translucence and density, unites their work.
