Renee So, Bellarmine XIII, 2016, stoneware, 50 x 26 x 20 cm. Courtesy the artist and Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery.

Renee So’s enigmatic characters in her whimsical Vessel Man tapestry and stoneware, weave the narratives of the body as a vessel for an assortment of indulgences. Her iconic Bellarmine stoneware drew inspiration from the 16th century German wine vessel conjured with traditional playing cards and Neolithic Chinese food vessels. Renee executes her two-dimensional works using a knitting machine, painstakingly “colours” and “paints” with acrylic yarn, warranting tremendous dexterity.
