Current and Future:
May 19th – June 1st 2022 In and Out of the Frame, Jack House Gallery, Old Portsmouth
I am excited to be one of a new collective of artists and makers from across the country who have come together to share their experimental approach, combining their individual methods with unexpected techniques and materials.
The artists work with print, paper, ceramics, fibres and found objects to make 2D wall hung and 3D sculptural pieces. Paper sculptures will sit alongside framed ceramic pieces and wall mounted prints. Through an exploration of colour, line, texture and surface in their innovative approaches, the artists produce works that push the boundaries and expectations of their chosen media. The elements of printmaking are frequently deconstructed, and there is an emphasis on surface decoration in ceramics. Collagraph plates are exhibited as works in their own right. Paper and ink take on new directions and association with found objects and materials. There are references throughout the exhibition to a sense of place, memory, time and landscape.
The work I am including for ‘In and Out of the Frame’ at the Jack House Gallery is from my collection ‘Ordinary Time‘.
