New art exhibition in Corby Glen
'Betwixt & Between' is an exhibition of ceramics and found objects by Mirella Bandini.
The exhibition opened on Wednesday and runs till August 14 at Willoughby Memorial Trust Gallery in Corby Glen.
What lies in the recesses between; the cracks that open amidst?
The spaces buried and almost lost . . . floating worlds.
Magic, memories and (e)motion.
Mirella is an emerging artist working primarily in ceramics, often coupled with or inspired by found objects.
She has an inherent love of old rusty metal, gnarled wood, wire and cotton thread, and these elements weave their way into her pieces.
She follows an intuitive process of making – a communion between clay and the human hand.
She explores the spontaneity and surprise of random and unique finishes over which she has little to no control.
Her pieces are frequently figurative in nature with a deeply emotive quality. They are often bound physically or contextually to a specific place.
This connection to place and emotion strives to create a continuum between mind, space and object.
Her landscape architectural education and South African upbringing emerge as generators in her work and contribute to its underlying emotive qualities.
Meet the artist at the gallery tomorrow (Saturday) between 2pm and 4pm.
The exhibition is open 12-5pm Tuesday till Sunday and the gallery is situated on Moreley’s Lane, Corby Glen NG33 4NL.
