PRECARIOUS

New solo exhibition by Amanda Shelsher

May 29 - June 17 2014

Beaver Galleries www.beavergalleries.com.au 

This new body of works encapsulates a new decade that has taken me by surprise, where close family, and close friends have all revealed in various ways that life is truly precarious.These autobiographical ceramic sculptures examine my personal view of the precarious nature of life: Changes to our physical self and the importance of protecting of our mental health in times of need. These mirror the precarious state of our planet as we experience extreme environmental changes. As precarious as life can be I hope it can be embraced, and as transitory as our existence is, we can still make positive changes and buckle ourselves in for an enjoyable ride.
