Sara Preisler Gallery presents:
This exhibition runs from 1st October – 30th November 2012
It is the energy of the landscape which informs the work of Sarah Purvey, its influence and rhythm echoing in the marks drawn, painted and scribed directly into each form that she creates.
Hand built using coils of stoneware, the physical process of her making is energised, reactive and intuitive. The surfaces of the large forms are created when the clay is still raw, vulnerable and at its most responsive.
Although inspired by nature, the ceramic in this body of work is not intended to imitate or recreate any particular landscape, but rather to explore and reveal the emotional and inherent sense of association and connection generated by our surroundings.
