These slipcast figures were the kernel of an idea that expanded into the Exposure series. When I first made them, I drilled holes in them in a vain attempt to open the pieces up to inspiration. I felt empty of ideas and was hoping for an influx of creativity! Then someone commented that the holes were like windows looking into the soul….and one thing led to another and within a few months (after first doing a self-directed module exploring Peter Voulkos and ceramic abstract expressionism) I was making the larger Exposure pieces shown on the next page.
This installation of figures is now in Peter & Julie Collis’ private collection.
