A Lino print from a series of prints I did in my final term at Falmouth focusing on expressing my inner feelings and confusions. I used only black ink in this series as a way of differentiating with my ceramic work which was exploring the beauty of female voice and sexuality. The starkness of black and white reflecting feelings of anxiety and unsureness.
One of the pots I made in my final term, it is currently unfired. I was expressing how it felt to be working during a pandemic, at times as if I was floating out at sea, anxious but strangely free. The crack adds to the work expressing how imperfections make us who we are as artists and humans.
A lot of my recent work has been inspired by fairytale and myth, I’m interested in female voice and wanted to revisit the stories I was told as a child with a female viewpoint as they often show women from a male perspective. Love stories that obsessed me when I was younger now seem ridiculous and unrealistic, Rapunzel being a good example.
This was one of the first ceramic pieces I made, I wanted to celebrate the qualities of the clay alongside the female form, I was using a coarse dark clay which contrasted so nicely with the light pink slip I painted on. If it was to be displayed physically I would encourage viewers to pick it up and turn it around in their hands, feeling the texture of the clay against their skin.
