A group exhibition by Mira Brkic, Lisa Piemonte, Jane Poynter and Christine Wood
Red Gallery Contemporary Art Space 2007
These are some of my favourite things… is a group exhibition by four women illustrating their individual progression from girl to woman. Through the use of the photographic medium each artist documents their ‘favourite things’.
Christine Wood: Souvenirs from foreign places, thoughtful gifts from relatives and friends: my collection of glass perfume bottles represents to me a connection to treasured people and places.
My recollection is now hazy of exactly when/place purchased or from whom each glass object came into my possession. Blurred and unclear images and the
transparent qualities of glass are intended to illustrate to the viewer this exploration of memory and time.
As a woman the ethereal beauty of glass especially in the form of a coloured perfume bottle is very appealing. Glass, whilst inherently strong and resilient, also conversely has characteristics of delicateness and fragility.
