Thank you to everyone who came over to Rosedale for our Private View of Spring Rituals.
Decorated eggs have long been a potent cross-cultural symbol of new beginnings and springs return.
This new collection of pieces are principally inspired by the eggs of the now extinct Elephant Bird.
These works explore the patterns made by the reassembly of these fossilised giant eggs.
The fragmented patterns are universal in their structure, like cracked dry earth and the breaking ice sheets.
The form of the egg and these patterns remind us of the eggs function as a protector of new life and its inherent fragility.
You can see the online exhibition catalogue here and read the full statement about the work. If you have any enquiries, please do not hesitate.
