The drawings of artist Robert Archambeau will be showcased in a new exhibition at the Winnipeg Art Gallery opening next month.
“Drawn and Fired: Robert Archambeau” takes the work produced over the last three years and displays it for audiences, along with examples of Archambeau’s ceramics drawn from the WAG’s collection.
“The textures of his ceramics emerge in the rubbed surfaces, or the silk textiles laid and affixed to the paper,” said chief curator Helen Delacretaz. “The minimalistic aesthetic of his drawings is indicative of the deceptive simplicity of his clay vessels. The earthy, robust physicality of his pots are complemented by the heady odour of ink and varnish and the tactile nature of the woven pulp surfaces.”
The exhibition will run until April 28.
