‘TRACES’

A solo exhibition by ceramic sculptor Angela Sidwell.​

Wednesday 7th October – Saturday 31st October 2020

Angela’s title refers to the remnants of habitat of our disappearing relationship with the natural world.  It encompasses many of the themes behind her work as well as the physical aspects  – fragmented forms – which inspire her.

I am always hesitant to use the term “nature”, as it implies that there is a divide between us and it, and this question is at the heart of what inspires my practice. My sculptures are fragmented as I am not seeking to capture a spirit or a moment in time, on the contrary – they are an invitation to the viewer, to move in and inhabit their world. The fibres in paper clay allow me to stretch and tear, pushing the material as far as I can before it breaks, the rough edges hinting at a ragged and delicate life in the balance. Incorporating wire into some of my pieces is both physically challenging and visually there is a conflict between the juxtaposition of the two materials. But as the steel grinds with the ceramic surface there is a dialogue between process and subject matter – that of life on the edge; harsh, precarious, difficult” – Angela Sidwell
