Save Event: Faces – Spaces, Rose Pettit & Kelvin Jenkins

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


Hand built clay heads along­side graph­ic mosa­ic collages.


Rose Pettit makes sculptures of heads, by moulding , carving and building, using wet clay. She begins each piece with no particular face in mind, but slowly the features emerge and become fixed in time with a story to tell.
Kelvin Jenkins uses collage on a black base as a medium. Subtle shades of ginger packing paper have become a regular feature as part of a more restricted colour palette using a mosaic-like technique.
Subject matter can vary but a constant theme is looking at mundane objects which are ubiquitous but overlooked, such as clothed pegs and traffic cones. 
'More recently I’ve been attempting to produce non-representational images that avoid having meaning attached to them, which is proving much more challenging than I’d imagined'
