emerging artist: Zoe Slee

My artworks explore the idea of costume through the use of theatrical influences and the main medium of ceramics. I utilise this by focusing on repetition in my ceramic forms and experimenting with ways of enhancing the body through the use of these forms. This idea concentrates on augmenting areas of the human body as a response to the body as a surface and space.

It is also through this use of ceramics in conjunction with inspiration drawn from fauna that I am able to give my ceramics pieces an element of softness. The robustness of the clay contrasts with the natural fragility that the forms represent. This quality is something that is extended and explored through the scale of the forms and the way they are arranged in mass across areas of the garments.
