Sarah Purvey @ Twenty Twenty Gallery

12 March 2022 - 16 April 2022

Sarah Purvey works both in clay and on paper, an inter-related body of work in which drawing is the unifying factor, as seen in Boundaries.  Throughout, the process is instinctive and organic. In clay there are vessels and deeply encrusted relief pieces, the latter roughly circular or square. The vessels are not functional but are highly distinctive sculptural objects, their surfaces earthy and tactile. They are made from one of two types of clay, both containing grog, which provides additional body and emphasises materiality.

The vessels vary in shape, encompassing round, oval, and bulbous neo-classical forms in black clay, and are further decorated.  Purvey describes drawing as a physically and emotionally charged act, a statement one could extend to the whole of her practice.
