studies and early works
by BRONTE CORMICAN-JONES
Eramboo, 304 McCarrs Creek Rd, Terrey Hills
OPENING: SAT 17th JUNE from 2pm
In this debut solo show, Bronte Cormican-Jones offers her works as a Vernissage (opening) to her practice, an exhibition of her studies and early artworks.
Bronte Cormican-Jones is an emerging contemporary artist, living on Garrigal land, Sydney. Her practice is primarily sculptural and responds to architectural spaces and materials. Bronte recently won the FUSE Glass Prize Emerging Artist Award 2022. She graduated with First Class Honours from Sydney College of Art in 2022, and is currently the Eramboo / Northern Beaches Council Artist in Residence.
Vernissage is a collection of Bronte’s early body of work spanning a four-year period. A combination of body-scale sculptures, installation pieces, performance, video and small object studies, the exhibition showcases her exploration of the material of glass, and her expanding conceptual research into visual perception and relationships between the body and space through reflective materials.
Bronte’s work investigates the material of glass for its potential to frame, reflect, separate and distort space. Her practice involves kiln-forming, blowing and cold-working glass and hand-silvering mirrors, along with steel, woodworking and performance. As Bronte’s debut solo exhibition, vernissage is a culmination of her early artistic practice.
