There is Another World but it is This One is the third exhibition & the first solo exhibition of
John Heaney’s ceramic work at ASW. John Heaney is currently completing a Master of Fine Art at The University of Newcastle.
Heaney works with clay because for him ‘it is such an expressive medium. Ideas, emotions, and memories are suggested through surfaces that open up like windows in an apartment building, or through textural surfaces that might be paper or cotton. While other forms are cut and slashed to reveal the frozen motion of the energy of rock formation’.
Everything we imagine is always permeated with our own experience of everyday life and the dreams we once had. It accumulates, adds up over time and spills out unbidden into the work I do, often taking me by surprise. John Heaney, September 2019.
