Todd Garner and Rosann Cherubini at the 90s Gallery, until 30 Oct.
Ceramic artists have come along way from the pot-wielding hippies some people still imagine them to be —this joint exhibition of installations and sculptural pieces is exemplary proof of that. Ayrshire-born Rosann Cherubini met and married American Todd Garnerwhile she was studying in the USA. A couple of years on and there is definite evidence of cross-fertilisation as both use part of the other's culture and incorporate it into their work.
‘I went to Mexico and was taken by the roadside shrines. They are little boxes with precious personal things in them,’ Cherubini states, and her installations are wooden boxes filled
with brightly coloured ceramic objects and symbols including hearts and rolled up £10 notes. Like shrines to a ZOth century life ruled by love and money, some installations include quotes: ‘Money is like sex, you think of nothing else if you don‘t have it' (Bertolt Brecht). In a piece called ‘Cross My Heart’ twisted nails and crosses are poised ready to screw themselves into a gaudin coloured heart. She also works in two dimensions — in pencil and gold leaf- creating studies which resemble latter-day icons.
Likewise the inspiration for Todd Garner’s work has a certain holy
element, but from a far more ancient
source. Taking Celtic mythology and early Christianity in Scotland as a starting point, his series of sculptural ceramics are windswept cloaked heads with gaping spaces where the faces should be. All folded clay, wrapped like
dirty rags around a column of empty space, ‘Jehovah as Witness‘ is a mystical piece evoking a shamen or holy man from some primitive society. Fossils, open books, and snakes feature in other works creating textured surfaces and evoking dark, esoteric atmospheres.
This duo exhibition is a lively and diverse exploration into worship and mysticism — and not a pot in sight! (Beatrice Colin)
