Peter Fonoglio, John Rohrig and Andrea Breen shared the space at Jugglers Art Space on Friday night with visual,text, sound and improvisational performance documentary on PL HIV in Papua New Guinea [Peter] and personal inner journeys [John and Andrea]. Peter’s Giclee prints and installations are dominated by red, black and greys and invite further reflections. So too do John’s prolific output of framed collages and ceramic/air dried scultpures and Andreas painted tiles, sound scapes and poetry. John’s and Andrea’s arts therapy practice emerged in both the works and the invitation to the audience to respond to the exhibition on paper. This 3 artist show is not one for the art investor or collector as much as it is an invitation to return, reflect and take the time to get a bit more understanding of what each of these amazing artists is saying and might not be saying. Having my sister exhibit and perform at Jugglers was a great highlight for me.
Three artists, three themes, three journeys overlapping.
