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 <strong>exhibition</strong> explores the<br />

concepts of highly skilled<br />

making, form <strong>and</strong> finish.<br />

Both artists reference traditional forms <strong>and</strong> techniques within<br />

their chosen medium, glass (<strong>Rowney</strong>) <strong>and</strong> ink on paper <strong>and</strong> wood<br />

(<strong>Markov</strong>), however, their practices extend well beyond this. Each<br />

element, line, curve <strong>and</strong> piece is considered <strong>and</strong> developed, creating<br />

refined forms. This <strong>exhibition</strong> showcases two great artists whose<br />

skills <strong>and</strong> sensibility makes them frontrunners in the production of<br />

design classics of the future.<br />

<strong>Zeljko</strong> <strong>Markov</strong> lives <strong>and</strong> works near Canberra where he has kept an<br />

independent studio practice since 1997. During the last eighteen<br />

years he has held solo <strong>exhibition</strong>s in Australia <strong>and</strong> has contributed<br />

to numerous group <strong>exhibition</strong>s <strong>and</strong> collaborative projects in Europe,<br />

Asia, America <strong>and</strong> New Zeal<strong>and</strong>. Whilst best known for his work<br />

based on ideas surrounding furniture, <strong>Zeljko</strong> works in a broad range<br />

of disciplines <strong>and</strong> mediums. His works in this <strong>exhibition</strong> include six<br />

black <strong>and</strong> white drawings <strong>and</strong> three sculptures in wood.<br />

<strong>Tom</strong> <strong>Rowney</strong> has been working in glass for over twenty years <strong>and</strong><br />

during this time the traditional Venetian techniques have been his<br />

constant source of inspiration. <strong>Tom</strong> is one of Australia’s foremost<br />

glass blowers <strong>and</strong> has a great passion for creating contemporary<br />

glass forms utilizing the precision <strong>and</strong> accuracy of techniques<br />

developed by the Venetian masters .<br />

<strong>Tom</strong> says of his work “Venetian styled cane work has been the<br />

singular most driving passion to my particular glass blowing style for<br />

so many years.<br />

The underlying element of the constructed sphere pieces (Low black<br />

forty eight; Black one hundred <strong>and</strong> twenty eight <strong>and</strong> Untitled panel)<br />

is a combination of adding <strong>and</strong> building up a work whilst utilising<br />

multiple simpler elements combined into one final form.”<br />

<strong>Tom</strong> is highly renowned for both his teaching <strong>and</strong> glassblowing skills<br />

by the leading glass studios <strong>and</strong> artists in Australia <strong>and</strong> overseas.<br />

He exhibits his artwork both nationally <strong>and</strong> internationally.<br />
