Conjure25th May 2022 - 19th June 2022
Location: Arsha Gallery , The Old Silk Barn, Quaperlake Street Bruton, Somerset, BA10 0HB
Co-curarted by Chantal Powell and Arusha Gallery, Conjure is an exhibition devoted to hand built ceramic works that speak to the artist’s hand and to the realm of the unseen.
Clay is a return to origin. It is the alchemical Prima Materia that, according to countless creation myths, is given form and into which life is breathed.
In this exhibition we witness the artist as creator - bringing forth new myths and fictions from their earth matter. Drawing from archetypal imagery these numinous works are charged with a sense of “other” and connect with us not through our minds but through a poetic sense of deep remembering.
