‘Material Landscape’ features new works by six artist-makers that simultaneously challenge and embrace the potential of their material, interrogating the limits and possibilities of clay, wood, metal and stone. Through a dedication to process, the works explore the fluid dialogue between material and maker, form and function.
Among the objects on display, Jack Doherty expands on the historical and cultural significance of the ceramic vessel through his refined soda firing practice; QEST William Parker Scholar Daniel Freyne’s muscular metal sculptures question volume and weight, whilst Nancy Fuller’s forms in clay reveal a deeply personal connection with place.
The works initiate a response to the physicality of form and a re-evaluation of our relationship to the three-dimensional world, often informed by locally sourced materials and a deep connection to the spiritual.
