Tom Rowney and Zeljko Markov, a joint exhibition

This exhibition explores the concepts of highly skilled making, form and finish. Both artists reference traditional forms and techniques within their chosen medium, glass (Rowney) and ink on paper and wood (Markov), however, their practices extend well beyond this. Each element, line, curve and piece is considered and developed, creating refined forms. This exhibition showcases two great artists whose skills and sensibility makes them frontrunners in the production of design classics of the future.

This exhibition explores the

concepts of highly skilled

making, form and finish.

Both artists reference traditional forms and techniques within

their chosen medium, glass (Rowney) and ink on paper and wood

(Markov), however, their practices extend well beyond this. Each

element, line, curve and piece is considered and developed, creating

refined forms. This exhibition showcases two great artists whose

skills and sensibility makes them frontrunners in the production of

design classics of the future.

Zeljko Markov lives and works near Canberra where he has kept an

independent studio practice since 1997. During the last eighteen

years he has held solo exhibitions in Australia and has contributed

to numerous group exhibitions and collaborative projects in Europe,

Asia, America and New Zealand. Whilst best known for his work

based on ideas surrounding furniture, Zeljko works in a broad range

of disciplines and mediums. His works in this exhibition include six

black and white drawings and three sculptures in wood.

Tom Rowney has been working in glass for over twenty years and

during this time the traditional Venetian techniques have been his

constant source of inspiration. Tom is one of Australia’s foremost

glass blowers and has a great passion for creating contemporary

glass forms utilizing the precision and accuracy of techniques

developed by the Venetian masters .

Tom says of his work “Venetian styled cane work has been the

singular most driving passion to my particular glass blowing style for

so many years.

The underlying element of the constructed sphere pieces (Low black

forty eight; Black one hundred and twenty eight and Untitled panel)

is a combination of adding and building up a work whilst utilising

multiple simpler elements combined into one final form.”

Tom is highly renowned for both his teaching and glassblowing skills

by the leading glass studios and artists in Australia and overseas.

He exhibits his artwork both nationally and internationally.
