Lauren Shantall (Pty) Ltd, an integrated communications company, proudly announces its partnership with ceramicist Martine Jackson and fine artist Galia Gluckman. Jackson, who graduated from Michaelis School of Fine Art at the University of Cape Town in 2000, continues the creative lineage that dates back to her late grandfather, Morris Adler, a sculptor. She currently works in a ceramic studio established in 1978 by her late mother, Barbara Jackson, a well-established ceramicist who first introduced Martine to clay at the young age of five.
Gluckman on the other hand, produces large-scale, multi-faceted artworks in her medium of choice: pigment ink on cotton paper and collage. She has exhibited across the globe and her work is represented in many private and corporate collections in Australia, Dubai, Israel, South Africa, Spain, the United Kingdom and USA.
In their collaboration, both artists are evaluating equilibrium versus imbalance in modern-day life and culture. Martine demonstrates her dynamic ability to balance the tension between the structure and forms inspired by nature. Galia juxtaposes precisely ordered lines with frenetic and randomly intersecting lines in an attempt to understand the transition from order to disorder and how life is either in balance or in tension.
The collaboration includes a limited edition range of six elegant ceramic pieces distinguished by striking organic shapes and intricately detailed transfer artwork, by “Martine and Galia Collaborate”. This collaboration is a perfect fit with Lauren Shantall (Pty) Ltd’s existing list of décor, design and lifestyle clientele.
