At last! Released from Lockdown and able to escape in the charabanc with a full Buckley contingent to @sunnybankmills to view the work at the Ones to Watch Exhibition. It’s been a while since I’ve seen my artwork and it was a relief to see it stood up well amongst the other work.
One artwork had been unexpectedly turned into a living exhibition by a visitor!
If you’re unable to visit the gallery you can look at all the work online here and vote for your favourite artist’s work in the People’s Choice Vote: Ones to Watch People's Choice
'Kate Buckley is an artist whose work strives to capture the interplay of shadow and light and embrace the space between.
She uses origami to create form through geometry and repetition and applies this blend of mathematics and sculpture to transform folded linen into patterns of light and shadow in porcelain, plaster and concrete.
Her cubes document the distortion of surface rhythm created by casting concrete and plaster onto folded linen.
The colours are stripped back to focus the eye on the pattern s of light and shadow.'
It's been such a joy to get back into a studio to work on my porcelain. I joined the Creative Studio in Stockton on the Forest and am very excited about the direction my work is going in. Watch this space for new ideas in geometric shape repetition and folding.
