Abigail Simpson @ Willer Gallery

13 October 2016 - 14 November 2016

Abigail Simpson’s hand coiled sculptural vessels are produced in her Hoxton studio
“For several years, the theme of the vessel has been a constant in all my work. During that time I have attempted to develop every aspect of it’s physical possibilities. In terms of ‘engineering the form’ these objects have moved through architectural stages, sometimes resembling entirely non-­‐functional columns as well as retaining their status as vessels. This has led inevitably to more sculptural concerns, and a desire to leave any semblance of ‘traditional studio based pottery’ behind.
Beyond the surface and scale, I am interested in the raw visceral properties of the material. I am also increasingly interested in juxtaposition: groups of objects, their relationships, either coherent or incoherent, and how the ancient history of ceramics can touch the possibility of pure sculpture.”
