ANGELA BRENNAN: RUSTIC DEITIES
Angela Brennan: Rustic Deities - Art Collector
|Courtesy: Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery, 2015|
An assemblage of exuberant artefacts, Angela Brennan’s Rustic Deities converses with the classical history of ceramics and painting, through her characteristically jocular optic. Sensual and robust, Brennan’s clay renditions navigate the line between the domestic and divine, continuing her playful enquiry into paradoxical forms.
