Leon Sadubin, a leading name in Australian furniture design, has been at his current workshop in Gerringong since 2012. He will be showing a series of sculptural occasional tables in White Cedar, a Hall table in Blackwood and White Teak, a Collectors Cabinet and one of his signature designs; an eight seat “Freeform” Dining table in Spotted Gum.
Penny Sadubin returned to Australia and settled in Gerringong in 2013 after living in London for 17 years. Following the completion of a Bachelor of Fine Art at UNSW COFA in 1994, Penny left to travel, settling in London where she developed her fine art practice alongside a successful Garden Design business.
Penny’s current work represents her response to an entirely new source of inspiration brought about by the move. All of her work is informed by the natural world and our human interactions with the landscape. This new series, based on items found and studied during frequent trips to the beach over the past 2 years, and reflects a narrowing down of focus to observe the infinite variability of patterns on limpet shells, or to consider the implications of the plastic debris washed up.
While Leon and Penny employ different mediums and approaches for their creative expression, there is a strong common ground to be found in the starting point; their responses to the local environment, in particular the shapes and forms of the Tidal Zone that inspires both of these artist makers.
