About

Castor Projects is pleased to present Dream On, a solo show by London based artist Claire Baily. 

The wall based objects and suspended forms that make up Dream On sit somewhere between painting, design object and sculpture.

Baily’s interest in design is evident as there is a strong Art Deco resonance in the work. They both share rich colours, bold geometric shapes and (often) lavish ornamentation. Art Deco combines traditional craft motifs with machine age imagery and materials. Baily’s work celebrates much of the Art Deco movement, embracing technology to produce finely crafted components. However with Baily’s work, the parts are much more than ornaments. They are not popular motifs either; they are essential elements of Baily’s particular vocabulary.

Baily seeks to articulate an interior architecture of sorts. Intricate armatures are clad with cast forms, arranged into expanding layered compositions where each element occupies a specific place.  This is making at its most considered.  We soon realise that every piece of material has been altered in some way to make it unique, asking the viewer to look closer to see if these alterations are functional or purely aesthetic? We are left to wonder.
