The Art House Open Lecture Series continues Thursday 4th April with ANNIE ATTRIDGE

About

Since graduating from the Royal Academy Schools in 2002, Attridge’s practice has focused on exploring female sexuality through the use of different materials such as household materials, jesmonite and more recently porcelain. Attridge produces small scale, delicately crafted figurative scenes and objects that are expressionistic and often overtly sexual. The sculptures recall abstract figures and forms set in a mythological landscape, frozen in this seductive and lustrous material. The scenes depicted are classical in theme and recall 17th century crafted miniatures and notions of the ready-made.

Her work has received reviews from The New York Times, Channel 4 News, ArtReview, the Evening Standard, and L Magazine. Publications include Design Behind Desire by Lisa Morgan (2011) and Nature Morte, Thames & Hudson (2013).

Recent solo exhibitions include Should of Could of Would of, MOCA London (2016); Wanderlust, Aysa Geisberg Gallery, New York (2012-2013); Hearts of Oak, Asya Geisberg Gallery, New York (2011).
