Robyn Campbell | Jo Victoria 

Transference is a collaborative exhibition by artists Robyn Campbell (ACT) and Jo Victoria (NSW) who exchanged their knowledge of glass and porcelain through a supportive process of learning, teaching, experimentation and play. The exhibition expresses the artists’ shared fascination with light and surface, and the potential of glass and porcelain to convey fragility and transience.   

Although working with different mediums, the artists took inspiration from the natural world and their surrounding landscape: Campbell from Canberra’s surrounding natural beauty and Victoria from the coastal landscape of Mossy Point on the south coast of NSW. Both artists felt safely supported by the collaborative process which emboldened them to explore new techniques and new work. 

"The collaborative opportunity to share skills and material knowledge with glass artist, Robyn Campbell has been a luxurious and stimulating creative process that has extended both our practices beyond what we could have achieved individually. Our love of the purity of glass and porcelain and their respective interactions with light has been the platform to push our art practices to new and exciting possibilities,” said ceramic artist Jo Victoria.
