14 March: Clare Twomey

Clare Twomey is a research fellow at the University of Westminster who works with clay in large-scale installations, sculpture and site-specific works: her work is in The Precious Clay now. Over the past 10 years, she has exhibited at the Victoria and Albert Museum, Tate, Crafts Council, Museum of Modern Art Kyoto Japan, the Eden Project and the Royal Academy of Arts.

 

21 March: Céline Berger

Also in The Precious Clay, Céline Berger's work explores our professional lives, in their daily, unspectacular aspects. Short narratives as texts or spoken language are at the centre of all her projects. She calls her work, "A search for new ways to question our daily working lives, beyond simplifications, irony, moralizing undertone or fatalism”.

 

28 March: Derek Boshier

Derek Boshier attended the Royal College of Art with notable ‘pop art’ artists R.B Kitaj, Allen Jones and David Hockney. His work uses icons of American consumer culture with the incorporation of big brand logos. Boshier’s work has appeared at the Walker Art Center (Minneapolis), Tate Britain and British Museum, Brooklyn Museum and Centre Pompidou. He has an Honorary Fellowship of the RCA (2016) as well as the Guggenheim fellowship and NEA award for the arts, and is an accomplished teacher and lecturer.

 

4 April: Annie Attridge

A graduate of the Royal Academy Schools, Annie Attridge’s practice focuses on exploring female sexuality through the use of different materials such as household materials, jesmonite and porcelain. She produces delicately crafted figurative scenes and objects that are expressionistic and often overtly sexual. The sculptures recall abstract figures and forms set in a mythological landscape. Her work has received reviews from The New York Times, Channel 4 News, ArtReview, the Evening Standard, and L Magazine and features in several publications.
