January 24 – March 22, 2015

Location: Perry Gallery
Artist: Lesley McInally
Curator: Jonathan Smith
Reception: February 8, 2-4pm

Born and raised in Scotland, Lesley McInally got her degree in ceramics and printmaking from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee University.  She immigrated to Canada over a decade ago and settled in the Georgian Bay area, in Cookstown, in a landscape that reminded her of her homeland.  Her slab built paper clay vessels, while functional in form are inspired by the landscape of both Canada and Scotland, especially the historic stone structures that show the accumulated layers of age.  Her forms take on the soft rounded contour of stones that have faced the effects of weathering over time.  These forms are often pierced with openings so that pinpoints of light illuminate dark interiors. Her surfaces range from mists of colour to glaze that resembles cracked, blistered, and peeling paint.  In the last couple of years she has developed a technique where she uses her old printmaking techniques.  She layers ceramic pigments and hand coloured porcelain engobes to create complex textural surfaces that reveal hidden burst of colour similar to lichens.  Her work possesses evocative powers that drive the viewer to decode the narrative elements which she hints at but never states.
