‘Preliminary Structures’ presents seven contemporary makers and designers working in moulding and casting techniques across ceramic and glass disciplines. The exhibitors combine studio and industrial making methods to create work that experiments with modularity, materiality, repetition, surface and form.
The works explore new ideas and concerns as investigated through mould making processes, and reflect on craft’s complicated relationship to industry, sculpture, design and architecture. The exhibition challenges preconceived ideas of industrial perfection and replication, and repositions these preliminary structures for their craftsmanship and artform.

Christina Darras is dynamic Melbourne artist of Athenian Greek origin. Her joyful exploration of various mediums allows her work to take various forms be it jewellery, paintings, embroidery or installations. Above all, Christina’s work evokes feelings of inquisitive optimism. This collection of artworks forms part of her ‘one thing a day’ ethos that happened to coincide with the harsh but necessary Melbourne lock-down. Through this trying time, Christina explored the idea of how isolation could lead to a perceived loss of identity. Her pared-back figures demonstrate the basic needs that we had - to connect with others through touch and to return to a life that was familiar. A restrained palate of peach and aqua strengthens this message.

Bec Smith is a Melbourne-based painter, designer and visual storyteller. Inner Mechanics is Bec's 5th solo exhibition and Creo's inaugural show. The works in this exhibition address Bec's 'before and after' feelings of the Melbourne lock-down as they relate to Jungian analysis and knowledge of the self - the ego, the persona and the shadow.
