15 August – 2 September 2006: Kir Larwill – Home


Gallery 2

Kir Larwill has found exquisite beauty in the simplicity of a bowl. The resulting exhibition home is a quiet homage to the vessel.

Bowls are associated with the familiarity, contentment and warmth of home. It is a recongnisable and timeless object symbolising the universal gestures of containing, holding, gathering, feeding and sharing.

Through Larwill’s exploration of subdued and subtle colour each image becomes a domestic portrait. Larwill has found a rare beauty and captured it in a moment of the everyday.

After many group shows around Melbourne, this is Larwills first solo exhibition.
