Claudia Terstappen, ‘Swing II‘, 2019, glazed ceramic, 41 x 38 x 36 cm
Please join us for an artist talk with Claudia Terstappen on Sunday 1 December from 2-3PM, where Claudia will discuss her new body of ceramic works and recent projects based on her current exhibition ‘form and memory’.
“[In] my work I react to specific aspects of my surroundings as found in architecture, or the natural environment. There are often particular shapes, colour combinations or compositions that stay with me, and that later get translated or incorporated into my sculptures. This happens quite freely. I isolate these phenomena, often enlarge them, concentrating on particular aspects as a response to what I’ve seen, like articulating memory. Set between the visible and the imaginary, the works create tensions between organisms and abstract forms, remaining open to an infinite net of relationships between culture and nature.”
