During Mary Jone’s talk down at the bay I started to observe the different colours and shapes within the surfaces of her heads. The layers of colour and layers of mainly circular shapes on top of each other inspired the simple sketches of mine. I am drawn to outlines and small components to bring together a composition. I would like to try her technique of pouring coloured porcelain slip on a plaster bat, then applying the hardened layer onto a piece of work, then adding black stain on top for more patterns.

Malene Hartmann Rasmussen

Malene’s work is incredibly personal with strong symbolism within it, arranging multiple components into complex narrative of visual excess. Her work holds a dialogue between the components and the way one’s unconscious can direct the composition. She creates a place beyond reality, a deceitful echo of the real world, that bends the perception of what is real. Lots of work in residencies and internships with other artists as a start. Her work is an entity in a room bringing animate life to the material of ceramics. her work is very site responsive with movements. Using her work as something to evoke the imagination and playing with 2d/3d effects.
