Corrina Thornton – installations, mixed materials

Very similar use of presentation – hopes for presentation, not creating perfect frameworks to then make invisible once main work is displayed – the framework is just as much the working piece as the ceramic piece of work is.

Barry Flanagan

‘an intense search for a practice that answers the aporias and contradictions involved in making sculpture.’

Flanagan – ‘consistent attitudes, representing not the adoption of an artistic stance, but simply opening a new area of research, a material to be tested and a tradition to be investigated.’

work vs play, craft vs art, spirit vs matter

These works of art I’ve recently found from Flanagan below show a repeated action of folding fabrics – good platforms to hold ceramic work, reminder of comfort, rest, and a calm environment.

Interesting shapes that are closed in through a circular framework, compact forms that could be spread out and create a new narrative.

Betty Woodman; a artist/sculptor/painter whos work is heavily focused on the domestic environment and surface painting. I saw her exhibition from a different angle of how she presented her work and what materials she was using as well as ceramic. Especially looking at the focus of fabric as the backdrop of even part of the work, wrapped around.  thumb_DSC_0025_1024   thumb_DSC_0039_1024 thumb_DSC_0042_1024 thumb_DSC_0051_1024 thumb_DSC_0052_1024 thumb_DSC_0056_1024  thumb_DSC_0061_1024 thumb_DSC_0065_1024 thumb_DSC_0066_1024 thumb_DSC_0067_1024 thumb_DSC_0070_1024
