about the artist

Figure of the artist as a young labourer” plays with the accepted uses of domestic ceramics and genres. Ideas of vulnerability and fragility are expressed through scale, intimacy, and humour. Being seen as a labourer and a girl might seem incongruous but this figure plays on Park’s experience and memory of what becoming a woman can be. The gestural terracotta figure, standing on an upturned tumbler, contrasts with the detail of the painted porcelain riverscape. She is a figure in a landscape. The sense of the countryside as a place of bucolic romanticism is juxtaposed with a feminine identity as a labourer and artist

Commemorative plates traditionally are souvenirs that mark royal weddings, baby’s births or other major events. Using this well-known trope of ceramics “She lost her composure 6 January 2020” turns the idea on it’s head to reveal a deeply personal and intimate moment marked in time. Each of us however can bring our own meaning to it’s ambiguous message
