Out of Necessity review in Ceramics: Art and Perception

Added on by Mathew McConnell.

I'm feeling very flattered this month... In his review of the exhibition Out of Necessity (curated by Jason Hackett), Adam Welch writes, "The most striking works are those of Mathew McConnell and Sin-ying Ho. McConnell's ambitious What it Means to Move (2013), are rough-hewn, exaggerating their manufacture while creating emotional distance. The colour and density of the arrangement are indicative of anguish, apparently the result of a struggle between creation and creativity. As McConnell explores the line between authorship and simulation, his work is the inevitable reciprocity." You can find the full article in issue 97 of Ceramics: Art and Perception.
