MASTER CLASS WITH FRANCES DOHERTY AND NICOLAS ARROYAVE-PORTELA

Tuesday 10 December 2013 at 18:30

FRANCES DOHERTY – ENGLAND- The work of Frances is characterized by forms from nature and the cycle of life in plants including flowers and especially seeds which often look similar to exotic underwater plants. She sculpts the forms larger than life and tries to express them as the view for an insect. The parts are wheel-thrown and assembled, high fired and glazed often including metal or wood in the final installation.

NICOLAS ARROYAVE-PORTELA- The work of Nicolas deals with illusion and there is something very sensuous in the objects that he makes. He tries to capture the natural movement and flow of the clay as if it created itself. The vessels are abstract and do not imitate nature itself but more a virtual geology and the result of the flow of water. He aims to make complex abstract forms understandable and aesthetic to the viewer. Arroyave-Portela is influenced by the Italian artist Lucio Fontana whose work in his opinion is visually intellectual – an ongoing challenge to the artist.
