Julia Krueger interprets ceramic artist Ruth Chambers’ artful calligraphy of stems and blossoms, unearthing an artistic lineage that ranges from 5th C BCE painters Zeuxis and Parrhasius and 15th Century still life painters and botanical illustrators to contemporary artists Marc Quinn and Makoto Azumain her essay Tending Time. Krueger’s writing about Tend is as detailed and attentive as the artist’s minute replication of each bulb and geophyte flower in her solo exhibition. Photographer Don Hall has captured the ethereal beauty of Chambers’ delicate ceramic objects in his catalogue photos
