Wendy Korol - Present Tense: 29th June - 9th July
Opening 29th June 6pm
The heroes of my making are overlooked, commonplace objects such as handles and knobs. We habitually handle them, interact with them visually, and are subtly influenced by their form, their arrangement and their colour. By reinterpreting these objects into abstracted forms I aim to draw the hidden, unnoticed qualities of these simple familiar objects into the viewer's consciousness, to pique his or her curiosity and to reappraise the familiar. Malleable materials such as clay, soft metal foil and mesh are well suited to my quick, intuitive and spontaneous making process. The work comes alive with my impetuous approach to the application of vitreous enamel and paint.
