    Exploring imaginative minerals in strange environments and possible futures, artist Ari Athans’ latest exhibition, ‘Volcanic Bloom’, opens this week at Edwina Corlette Gallery in Brisbane.

    “Science underpins all my work,” explains Athans, with geography, geology, and topography combining in her paintings to resonate with a sense of the earth and its timeless processes, to explore the fuzzy boundary between organic and inorganic. In Athans’ latest exhibition, the artist takes inspiration from faceted gemstones and the geological formations from the after affect of erupting volcanos, experimenting with the concept of physical variables and abstract forms through layers of enamel paint on mild steel ground.
