Tuesday 24th April to Sunday 6th May 2012

Signal Arts Centre is pleased to announce an exhibition by Vicki Sutherland and Elizabeth Petcu. Both have recently graduated from Bray Institute of further Education with Higher National Diplomas in Fine Arts, with Ceramic Art as their Specialist Practice. This exhibition will showcase their recent porcelain work.


Both artists have exhibited work in several Ceramics Ireland exhibitions. Elizabeth was awarded the Gallery Zozimus Purchase Award at the Ceramics Ireland juried exhibition 2011. Elizabeth also exhibited in Sculpture in Context 2011, winning a Sculpture in Context Award for her porcelain Ghost Fruit.


Currently working with unglazed porcelain and exploiting its translucent properties, Elizabeth creates forms which when illuminated become almost more exciting inside than outside, defining a space which previously seemed unnoticed.


Vicki's work is based on the theme of Memory and Remembrance and will feature her architectural series of slip-cast porcelain 'Nama Stairs'. These Escher-like stairs, leading in various directions, but ultimately going nowhere, are a testament to the greed and folly of the Celtic Tiger years. Her thrown porcelain pieces remember discarded fragments of patterned china found on beaches in her 'Shards' series, and the small celadon-glazed 'Wave Vessels' celebrate the mark of the maker.

Opening Reception: Friday 27th April 7 p.m 9 p.m
