Exhibition…. “Animal Magic” …….. By Ostinelli & Priest
OSTINELLl & PRIEST
Where to begin, at the beginning would be too easy.
For the work continues to develop in its subjects, their form, colours, and size.The basic principle re construction, the Ostinelli&Priest method of how to overcome gravity still remains the same although all else changes/develops. The aim/purpose of the work is to delight and inform through its presence and character.This is achieved to great effect by the careful selection of galleries in which the work is exhibited.
The work has now become very collectable, generating both national and international interest particularly in America.The work has been involved in exhibitions in China and work being sent to New Zealand, Paris, Denmark, Brazil, France and Italy. The work also being shortlisted for The David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of The Year award.
The working partnership which is Ostinelli&Priest flourishes and develops simply because the balance of understanding between the two makers/artists/ceramacists continues to create work that pleases and inspires.The subjects chosen by Ostinelli&Priest remain unchanged for the moment, although diversity of animal breeds that are the subjects never stops growing due to the incredible number of breeds available. Paul Priest has been a professional member of the CPA for many years, our work selling very successfully in The Contemporary Ceramics Centre Bloomsbury.
The work considered is our painting, we have always thought of our work as a cross over between on the one hand sculpture, the pieces are of course first created in clay and fired, only then is colour applied bringing further character and individuality as the work develops. Sculptures will be fired and then quote as many times as is necessary to achieve the required finish.
Gallery Zozimus, art gallery, in the centre of Dublin’s Arts and Antiques Quarter of Francis Street, is ideally situated in the centre of a triangle that comprises Christchurch, St. Patrick’s Cathedral and the Visitor Centre at the Guinness Hop Store.
