About the work:
Unknown Land, Terracotta Sculpture by Oh Hey Grace.
This piece is part of Talismans, Rafts, Mementos: a group exhibition showcasing the work of the entire community of Modern Times artists. Throughout 2020 artists used their practice to make sense of what was happening, and this show celebrates this rich vein of creative output.
“My offerings for Talismans, Rafts, Mementos includes a collection ceramic dwellings, puzzles and shrines crafted as a response to the often dystopian reality outside. These pieces act as a snapshot of time during the past 100 days of lockdown in Melbourne, offering a moment of quiet reflection or the opportunity to imagine alternative futures in a utopian landscape,” says Grace.
About the Artist:
Grace Brown of Oh Hey Grace creates a mix of functional and sculptural pieces using a combination of wheel thrown and hand building techniques. Influenced by geometry, contrasting textures, architectural forms and the work of M.C. Escher, her work is part functional ware and part Utopian cityscapes with labyrinth-like buildings featuring layers of geometric stairwells, sharp lines, smooth adobe domes and archways.
