Rebecca Appleby - Sculptural Ceramics "Urban Palimpsest"
10th September to 8th October 2016
Hand built from slabs of clay, with a particular focus on curves, edges and joints, Rebecca's multi layered, monochromatic works are a visual study of the 21st century urban landscape, inspired by the artist's own photography and discarded remnants of urban life. Through abstract forms and the pairing of textural effects such as lines and grids with random, organic marks, her works examine ideas of structural decay, and the cohabitation and conflict between nature and industry.
Urban Palimpsest II
From highly sculptural ceramics, vibrant collages and experimental landscapes, Rebecca Appleby's work is an exploration of the contemporary urban landscape and examines the cohabitation and conflict between industry and nature. Her works are defined by marks and surface contusions that mimic both the manufactured process of industry and the seemingly sporadic occurrences found in nature.
