2022 Exhibition Cultivate

March 11 - April 21, 2022

"A knowing response to earth, a reconnection to self and a connection to others through creativity."

Cultivate

CULTIVATE was a response to Fiona’s recent journey to the USA to study figurative sculpture at Penland School of Craft. This body of work, surrealist in nature, includes small and large figurative and portrait sculpture, large vessels and ceramic installations incorporating the symbolic use of natural found objects. 

This body of work freely and openly explores the processes of what it is to be human: the dark and the light, the traumatic and the healed, the introspective and the retrospective. The work aims to convey belief in the value of self-exploration and personal resolution, both individually and collectively. 

As human beings we are joined by our processes, by way of nature and nurture; with the earth beneath our feet and our own unique experience of humanity. We are all connected in many ways.

Exploring subconscious landscapes

Part of Fiona’s creative practice engages in more conceptual exhibition style work. Using ceramic materials and extensive engagement with a variety of ceramic applications, this work explores a deeper dialogue with interpersonal sub-conscious landscapes. In other words, that which we may feel, but don’t often see.

The ceramic materials and process lead the way through this creative practice, often revealing the unknown and in turn providing new spaces to experience and navigate. The use of universal symbolism and strong narrative invites the viewer of this work to both connect and reflect in a unique personal way. 

Engagement with the work provides opportunity for the viewer to reflect on their relationship with self, others and the surrounding environment. Of what it means to be human in this space and time.
