Much in Common, Nothing Alike celebrates the immense contribution of three ceramic artists, Pippin Drysdale, Jeffery Mincham AM and Warrick Palmateer. Landscape, landscape and landscape are the common threads for these three. From there, they are indeed “Nothing Alike”!

Perth audiences have a rare opportunity to experience the ceramic brilliance of three extraordinary and influential artists. Over decades, Mincham has created his signature glazes, resulting in the unique palette he applies to his hand-coiled organic forms. Monumental in essence, regardless of scale, each artwork tracks changes in the hills of his Cherryville surrounds and the Fleurieu Peninsula, with history and contemporary events reflected equally. Drysdale clusters her porcelain marbles and vessels to evoke breathtaking abstract portraits of the outback through her passion for form and colour. Palmateer is undoubtedly a genius on the wheel, throwing monumental vessels that echo the drama of the ocean and beach, or the perfect porcelain backdrop for Drysdale’s clarion works.

Much In Common, Nothing Alike is an inspiring look at the entirely individual practices of Mincham, Drysdale and Palmateer, highlighting their profound respect for the landscape’s physical and spiritual beauty.
