Nathalie Carnec & Magdolna Toth | Networks

Opening Reception: Thursday 2nd November, 7 – 9pm

For “Networks”, Magdolna Toth has created sculptures capturing the concepts of overlapping grids and global networks that connect us, using the medium of paper porcelain which she moulds into intricate lattice frameworks, embodying the delicate balance between vulnerability and strength. Her work is tied to worldwide networks – each intersection of a sculpture represents a node in a vast network, reminding us of our interconnectedness and prompting reflection on collective impact.

Nathalie Carnec responds to Magda’s alveolar paper clay grid by exploring a similar 3D structure which she then distorts using the principles of origami. The tactile quality of the materials is essential to her work, where she employs folding techniques with paper and industrial plastics to create organic, almost sensual expressions.  Nathalie also uses video and digital tools to further extend her vision.

Nathalie Carnec

Nathalie has been working with colour for over 30 years, exploring various mediums from samples on paper to textile fibres. She has even developed her own weaving technique. Recently, she has been exploring the realm of three dimensions to pursue the optical effects she previously achieved in her weaving pieces.

Magdolna Toth

Magda is a multi-lingual artist with a broad background in ceramics. Clay is a form of self-expression for her and she describes her studio as “a place of retreat”. She enjoys working with new and unfamiliar clays and techniques and takes her inspiration from the surrounding world: nature, science, architecture and network systems.
