Merete Rasmussen: Bronze & Ceramic, Pangolin London, Kings Place 90 York Way London N1, until 16th January 2016
It is always nice to end the year on a high note and this is certainly what is happening at Pangolin London. Why? The answer is two-fold – first they are hosting the first solo show of the Danish-born Merete Rasmussen, a noted abstract ceramicist. Secondly the artist has started to work with Pangolin Editions and is now working in bronze as well.
The complex stoneware pieces she makes by hand using the coil technique are equally suited to bronze and this exhibition provides a vividly colourful display of four bronzes and new ceramic pieces. Rasmussen explains her approach to her work saying “Different form expressions appeal to me and result in my continuous exploration with many different variations: soft but precise curves, sharp edges, concave surfaces shifting to convex; the discovery and strength of an inner or negative space. I am intrigued by the idea of a continuous surface, for example with one connected edge running through an entire form.”
You will not be surprised to learn that she also designs jewellery.
