Created for a solo exhibition at the Ottawa Art Gallery, this installation has toured Quebec and has been exhibited in the Taiwan Ceramic Biennale in 2018.
I am drawn to how ceramic materials and processes have affinities with the human condition. How we respond and engage with the injury of experience – within, with each other, with the other is at the core of my practice. By embracing wounds, deeper meaning can be brought to our lives, transforming suffering into something worthy, sensuous and beautiful. As COVID-19 sweeps around the world, profound issues of social injustice are laid bare. Awareness that we are all one has never been more pressing.Paula Murray
