Corrine Edwards employs symbols and iconic imagery from ancient civilisations in her ceramics and monoprints. Special Late Opening with the artist Thursday 18th October from 6pm at our Gabriel's Wharf gallery.

About

Artist Corrine Edwards' ceramics and artwork are inspired by many sources and experiences. She draws on  iconic imagery from diverse ancient civilisations -- such as West African Ghanaian Adinkra symbols with proverbial meanings and cultural and social references and Pre-Roman earthworks, archeological and maritime finds and artefacts.

Corrine's printmaking work utilises ceramic pieces in a series of photo etchings, including monoprints employing silver ink on black tissue paper.  She also uses innovative techniques incorporating jewellery as printing plates. 

Corrine's role as a London beekeeper combined with her interest in mythology and imagery in ancient cultures causes certain shapes - particularly hexagons - to also feature in her work. A fascinating blend of human cultures and nature.
