Correction Point is an important exhibition, where we experience artist Joanna O’Toole collaborating with her husband Warwick O’Toole from Maker Furniture, for the first time. They will join forces from idea, to process and design fabrication for exhibition with Curve Gallery in August. Exploring playful design and sculpture, Correction Point features considered creative objects with complex narratives found within simple forms.
