Between Falling Rays
Kingston Arts Centre, Friday 21 June - Saturday 3 August
Opening Thursday the 20th of June 6-8pm
Artists Kate Wischusen, Lauren Joffe and Georgina Proud present a curated selection of their latest ceramic works in this new group exhibition. They each work across a number of ceramic techniques including wheel-throwing, hand-building, and high-firing in both oxidised and reduced atmospheres. Through exploring the reactivity of light against surface and material, each artist considers the relationship between light, shadow and form in their works, whilst playing with concepts of memory, beauty and femininity. Their collective skills across both concept and material process, enables them to achieve the many unique forms and finishes demonstrated throughout this exhibition.

Still Life reimagines the genre in a contemporary context, through the vastly different practices of botanical illustrator Sarah Jane Lightfoot and ceramicist Georgina Proud. This exhibition continues on the long tradition of reinvention of the genre questioning the common perception of it as a lower form of art. Through this collaboration they explore humanity’s innate affinity with the natural world, and how we endeavour to bring nature into our homes. Still Life considers the notion that the vessel and arrangement depicted in an image is as much a work of art as the image itself.
