Unity, An Exhibition By Contemporary Artists Rick Cook and Peter Usher
Broaden your horizons with ‘Unity’, an exhibition by contemporary Australian artists Rick Cook and Peter Usher at REDSEA Gallery. United in their portrayal of strength and depth in nature, observe how the duo complement the exhibition’s theme with Cook’s glassworks discovering nature from an aerial standpoint and Usher’s conceptual sculptural wall art using mixed mediums.
With paintings that are visually beautiful and conceptually strong, Usher’s artworks are a dialogue addressing his ongoing and deepening relationship to the natural environment within which he lives and works.
Cook’s canvas takes on the form of glass vessels; a medium he crafts in a molten state by hand at a furnace. Based on a reflection of nature and its environment, a series of glass colours are mixed with a visual in mind.
