Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : July 9th 2009
26 INNER WEST COURIER, Thursday, July 9, 2009 MB Complementary sculptures '' It's strange to know that we don't always understand our bodies LISA WISE, sculptor Lisa Wise and Kevin Heisner among works from their exhibition in Rozelle. Picture: CRAIG WILSON ~PP294208 Shireen Khalil CONTEMPORARY bodies are explored in a new sculpture exhibition showing at Rozelle's Gallery Aloft. It features complementary work by artists Kevin Heisner and Lisa Wise. Wise is a sculptor from Bora Ridge in northern NSW and her primary artistic subject is the human body. ''I use the body in my work mainly because it's the thing people are most familiar with. We all have that in common. But it's strange to know that we don't always understand our bodies,'' Wise said. She said there is a dark side to her work. ''Once my work was described as a velvet hammer because it has this dark side to it. Because lots of it is in porcelain it's pretty, but it can also be unnerving,'' she said. ''I like to get a reaction from people with this darker element. I want to challenge their notions.'' Heisner has been a fashion designer for 25 years. ''I'm working with Southern Ice por- celain, which is strong and translucent. With my fashion background I work with natural textiles to embed lace patterns into porcelain mannequins,'' Heisner said. His main work on display is a large mannequin. ''It has lace flowing up and over, with crystal pins illuminating it,'' he said. This is Heisner's first exhibition and he is feeling the jitters of anticipation. ''I'm very nervous but I'll be happy to see all my pieces displayed at the gallery.'' Heisner met Wise while they were studying together and bonded over a shared passion for form. The exhibition will run until Saturday, July 25. For information visit www.galleryaloft.com.
