Ian Scott Massie has fond childhood memories of Scotland. Subsequently he has come back for many sketching and painting visits.

Fermata is a music symbol indicating a prolonged note or rest - exactly how much longer it is held is up to the discretion of the performer or conductor. The two artists to be featured in this exhibition capture a moment and “hold” it in very different materials - clay and linoleum. The artwork of the media in this exhibition has to go through temporary transitional stages. The pottery gets shelved before it is fired in the kiln and the design in linoleum is cut in stages - before the final linoleum layer is applied with paint. The final artistic expression - a raku or wood fired ceramic piece or print - is an outcome after "prolonged note or rest" - fermata in the creative process.
