While in Portugal in 2018 I was caught in the catastrophic bushfires that ravaged the country around the town of Pedrogao Grande and killed 69 people. Four months after returning home my mother passed away. This is a selection of works produced in the following months.
In Voir fountains burst forth and fecund plants grow out of fire. Lost loved ones visit me in my dreams and ignite ancient lights; a statue gazes lasciviously at a brilliantly polished table. I spend my time between night and day, life and death. My worlds burn brightly, smothered by luscious greenery and bright coloured snails. I am thrilled and horrified; I am spilling desire.
The Chosen Vessel - a collaboration with Belinda Michael
The Chosen Vessel is a first time drawing and ceramics collaboration between artists Tiffany Titshall and Belinda Michael.
Belinda Michael is creating large gourd-like vessels that might once have been used by women to cart water. The decoration responds to the form yet it tells a subverted story of female hedonism and sadism.
The story is of a woman born on the goldfields who grows up to perform wild and powerful acts on a harem of enslaved men. The scene is an arid landscape surrounding an engineered and fluctuating body of water. The seemingly barren backdrop of the landscape could be the foundations for Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights.
Exhibition details to be announced during 2020.
In the studio and other places.
Tiffany Titshall works in charcoal on paper from her studio in central Victoria. From landscapes and follies to darker, more overt images of animals and devils, her work always simmers with hints of her inner world.
