One for the Road brings together recent sculptures and 2D works, exploring the things we put our faith in today. These shrine-like works aim to bring some light in to November’s dull days and long nights.
Light a candle to celebrate your regrets, wire crystals to a prayer for a life partner, stash your secrets in a snuffbox with a gold leafed interior.
The setting of Intra and its shopfront window provide the ideal location for these works which explore our relationship to consumerism and a play on the devotional anticipation of Black Friday.
I have always been interested in our relationships and emotional attachments to objects and everyday things. I'm interested in how the act of making can be a cathartic process and perhaps even an act of faith. The aesthetics of work reflect touch, mark making and the denote the time and labour it takes to make the work and the process of making itself.
Devotional objects and memento mori are ongoing sources of inspiration along with modern substitutes for religion and words, always words!
Visit the Intra Arts' window day or night throughout November.
337-341 High St, Rochester ME1 1DA
