Richard Spoehr & Ling Yoong

'Nuance - a reflected past' and 'Photographs'

3 May - 28 May 2106

RICHARD SPOEHR and LING YOONG each present photographic and ceramic works that are a culmination of a lifetime of thoughtful creative exploration.

For RICHARD SPOEHR this exhibition marks his keen foray into the potential of clay. Attracted to essential forms, SPOEHR imbues functional everyday items of life with a delicate simplicity. Working with porcelain and clay, SPOEHR creates beautifully thrown bowls, vases, jugs and cups whose symmetry is offset by the delightful imperfections of dripping edges, speckles and colour graduations. However do not think these are quickly "thrown together" forms. Under SPOEHR's eye for curve and balance of space, each piece catches the light and grows with its changing shadow.
In each work SPOEHR explores the potential of form, some are delicate and seamless in their smooth surface, whilst others are imbued with a solidity of form and weight. Carefully considered, there is a quiet stillness within each of SPOEHR's works that awaits engagement.

LING YOONG is an experienced GP whose work has taken her to China and Central Asia and many remote parts of Australia. A constant traveller, accompanying this passion is her photography. With her always is her trusty camera, a Canon 5D 111, including a 100-400mm lens for the trip. In 2012 YOONG travelled to Far East Russia where she met photographer Sue Flood, this then led to a trip to Zambia the following year in 2013.
YOONG is interested in capturing the immediacy of nature. Her photographs are glimpses of those moments of flight or ripple with a vitality and energy that exuding from the action shots. With an eye for composition, YOONG reveals patterns within nature that blur the line between reality and abstraction.

Though different mediums and focuses, be drawn into the artist's eye through the compelling works of RICHARD SPOEHR and LING YOONG.
