Lucinda Mudge’s extraordinary vases captivate the eye with their luxuriant colours and intricate detail. Both a visual and a socio-political record, this collection of 20 new vases for her Everard Read London exhibition draws inspiration from a wide variety of references - from art history to cartoons, pop songs, fabric designs and Art Deco vase patterns - resulting in whimsical collisions of the popular and refined, the mundane and the elevated, the violent and the beautiful.
A Lucinda Mudge vase encompasses all of life. Its form and content come together in a singular unity that celebrates our abundance and possibilities. It also exists in the world as a three-dimensional object to be circumnavigated until it reveals all its contradictions and riddles.
