LUDA Korczynskyj is delving into women’s minds and bodies as part of her latest solo exhibition Women on a Wire.

The Victoria Park artist will be exhibiting her ceramic artwork at the Gallows Gallery in Mosman Park from January 26 to February 1.

“It’s an exhibition that’s been coming for some time; I was going to exhibit the artwork in 2015 but I did the show about my father’s experiences fighting against the Germans as a Soviet solider,” she said.

“One of the main artworks has been sitting on a shelf for 10 years until I learned new skills to finish it.

“The exhibit is about the ups and downs the women go through, I know myself that I’ve headed into the studio to stop myself from going crazy.”

Korczynskyj said she received 10 testimonials from friends and other women in her life that will be used as part of the exhibition.

“The women talk about difficult stages in their lives and some of them are poems,” she said.

“The stories are about survival and triumph through the tough times.

“There are 65 pieces in the show, which seems like a lot but some of them are quite small.”
