Material Presence: Zoe Preece

Material Presence: Zoe Preece

A domestic scene

Zoe Preece is drawn to thresholds, to transient spaces, to the in-between. Taking notice of moments that might go unseen, she contemplates the meniscus on a spoon filled to the point of tipping, or the precarious balance of two cups stacked one on top of the other on a kitchen surface, each on the brink of something. She recognises an uncertain beauty here and a longing that is resonant of human experience. The white porcelain clay she uses becomes a metaphor, its movement from one state to another embodying aspects of human being.

Embellished stories from Rhiannon Williams

Rhiannon Williams embellishes stories. Using embroidery techniques, she stitches together stories of people. Her richly embroidered narratives convey scenes from modern day life, to nostalgic memories of times gone by, exploring human relationships and feelings of belonging. Rhiannon studied her degree in Textiles at University College Falmouth in 2011 and her Masters at the Royal College of Art in 2014.

Zoomorphic

Zoomorphic

The half world between human and animal

The zoomorphic transformation of humans taking on animal form has been part of folklore and religion for millennia, from native American skin walkers, Egyptian gods and the creatures of European fairytales. These hybrids explore the imagery of fantasy and magic but also the essential animal instinct behind all human nature. The work in this exhibition explores the half world between human and animal through ceramics, textiles and print.
