Exhibiting as part of the exciting Art in Dunchurch event, I will be showing a new body of work which started during the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic. During the first lockdown, my thoughts were of my grown-up children, family and friends, who I was unable to see.
As I began to experiment in clay with symbolising these people who are very important to me, I sought to capture some of their many individual characteristics from memory, trying to create a subtle sense of the familiar, with a suggestion of their narrative. Using features to represent an essential part of the nature of the individual – modern day statuettes, as well as statements of our time, purposefully minimalist, pared back to capture a moment for eternity.
