‘Under the Surface’ explores the inherent tensions between the material, the form, and the surface in creation of functional, decorative and figurative objects made from clay. Nadine Bastow, Felicity Bodycoat, Alison Brown, Greg Crowe, Ian Dowling, Mel Ellero, Kim Gillespie, Patricia Hines, Deanne Jecks, Bernard Kerr, Jen Kerr, Robbie Kerr, Robin Lees, Victoria Malone, Steven McCoy, Holly O’Meehan, Narayani Palmer, Sylvie Riches and Uday Singh.

The title also locates the exhibition in Dwellingup and alludes to political, environmental and social tensions created by the creep of Bauxite mining in the surrounding state owned forests. The mining of bauxite that sits 5m deep under the surface requires the removal of entire forests and destroys the fragile surface soils, vegetation and habitats within a global biodiversity hotspot.
