Born from Fire: Return to the Flames
“Born from Fire” was launched in 2017 as an exhibition to showcase the scope & quality of three-dimensional, sculptural art created by Fijian artists in Fiji. With new works, new themes and guest artists, the exhibition went from strength to strength through two more shows until the enforced break of the last couple of years.
The silver lining of this strange era has been the time to refresh the creative flow, to slow down and look around, to enjoy the beauty and wonder that surrounds us here in Fiji, and to create new ways to distill an essence of that beauty into works of art.
Thus this new exhibition is a reflection of a “Return to the Flames” for both Alice and Shane – a return to the glass furnace in Korotogo and to the Metal workshop in Savusavu, both studios now bustling again with creativity, with new work and new ideas, which can be seen here on display at Born from Fire 2023 – Return to the Flames.
